The new sound for Twitter is the “chirp” sound


Share post:

We are a few of them The Verge have noticed something new about Twitter’s iOS app: when you pull down to refresh your feed, you might hear a couple of new noises. One is a tiny windup sound that plays when your feed is first pulled. The other is a confirmation chirp. (Though the sounds are more robotic than any real-life bird I’ve heard.)

I recorded a recording you can hear what I’m hearing. It’s a little different from the short “pop” you might have heard when refreshing before.

We’re not exactly sure when the change kicked in, but we first noticed it Friday afternoon, and we’ve seen a Lots Of TweetsAlso, check out the tweets about Friday’s new chirp.

This seemingly isn’t an iOS-only change. One Verge staffer on Android is occasionally hearing the second new noise I described, and a few of the tweets I’ve found about the chirp were sent Starting at Android.

You can hear the noise on your phone by pulling down to refresh it. If you don’t hear it, try force closing the Twitter app and opening it again (this is what worked for me), and make sure you’re on the latest version of the app. We’re not sure how widely this is rolled out, so you may not have the sounds just yet even if you try those steps.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to refresh the app to hear the lovely new sounds again. I’ll do it again. Maybe one more. Last time, I promise…
