A voice tweet is published as a tweet with audio that can be played. As long as you are updating the profile picture, the current profile picture will remain as a still image in the audio attachment. Playing an audio file automatically minimizes the audio dock at the bottom of the screen so you can keep listening while you scroll through Twitter.
