Issue with tweets when podcast is posted

Other Apple Chat
Hi, I have noticed that for the past few days whenever a podcast is posted to applevis two tweets are posted by the applevis account. The tweets are identical apart from the fact that one tweet is always tagged #audio and the other tweet never has a tag. Could this please be fixed? as the extra tweet does add spam to the timeline. Also the tweet that doesn't have an #audio tag says new podcast at the beginning of the tweet, but the tweet with a tag doesn't say new podcast at the beginning of the tweet.
Alex, The 2 tweets are quite different - the first is the one that we’ve traditionally posted, and links back to the podcast’s page on AppleVis. The second tweet has a link to the actual audio file. Used in conjunction with the #audio hashtag, it enables people using Twitter clients such as Qube to play the audio directly from their timeline. If you don’t want to see the second of these tweets, simply use the Mute option in your Twitter client to hide tweets containing the #AppleVisPodcast hashtag.
Hi David, OK thanks for that, I didn't realize the two tweets served different functions, being able to listen to audio from within the qube is quite handy.
