What is Twitter Spaces?

Twitter Spaces is a digital space that allows you to openly talk about topics that are of interest to you as well as those who follow you. It helps truly engage with your followers or a group without being limited by time or character constraints.

More About Twitter Spaces

Twitter (now X) launched Twitter Spaces in November 2020. The platform is built into the Twitter application. Twitter Spaces gave strong competition to the then-popular Clubhouse application.

Twitter Spaces allows users to hold live-streamed audio discussions via social media. Rather than simply reading tweets or following a thread, users are able to listen to and engage in real-time conversations. You can use it to supplement your podcast, create hype either prior to or following an important event or discuss nearly anything.

Twitter Spaces includes Ticketed Spaces, an element that allows audiences to support creators for the audio-on-demand sessions they create financially.

Ticketed Spaces allows you to earn income via ticket purchases. As the creator, you would be completely free to choose the ticket price. You can spend anywhere between $1 and $999. Furthermore, you have the ability to decide how many people you would like to be in your Space.

A Space allows hosts, co-hosts, and guests to talk. The host has the ability to manage who talks in Space and remove people. Only people who have been welcomed to speak are granted speaker perks by default on the platform.

Nevertheless, the host can change the Speaker permissions to allow everyone, persons you follow, or only those you invite to talk. Hosts can add additional speakers and co-hosts as the discussion advances, and listeners may provide requests to speak.
