Twitter on Monday announced that Android and iOS users with 600 or more followers on Twitter can host Twitter Spaces. According to Twitter, the update is based totally on the feedback that suggests users have a good experience hosting live conversations because of their existing audience.
Twitter Spaces is the Company’s latest feature that allows Android and iOS users to host live audio conversation rooms. Twitter was building and testing Spaces with a limited group of users for the last few months and has finally rolled out the Spaces for users with more than 600+ followers. However, Twitter says it’s still planning to bring Spaces to all users in the near future.
You can spot a purple bubble around someone’s profile picture in your Home timeline when they’re live.
This update will allow users to follow people more closely and will provide the capability to listen to them and get involved in live discussions.
Twitter also unveiled some of the interesting features it’s preparing to launch soon, like Ticketed Spaces, scheduling features, reminders, support for co-hosting, accessibility improvements, and more.
Twitter Spaces will soon allow creators to monetize their live ‘Spaces’ by introducing a ticket system where the host can set ticket prices and availability slots to join. The exact breakdown of the charges is yet to be announced, but Twitter might charge some fee for Ticketed Spaces.
