Twitter has built-in an auto-thread feature for voice tweets that go over the 140-second limit.
"Once you reach the time limit for a Tweet, a new voice Tweet starts automatically to create a thread. Once you're done, tap the Done button to end your recording and go back to the composer screen to Tweet." the blog added. Below is an example of how the an audio tweet would sound like:

Twitter has developed this feature in hopes that it will reduce misunderstandings and "create a more human experience" for the user.
"There's a lot that can be left unsaid or uninterpreted using text, so we hope voice Tweeting will create a more human experience for listeners and storytellers alike. We can't wait to see how people will use this to make their voices heard and add to the public conversation." according to the blog noted by Forbes.
