What is Twitter Space?
Twitter Spaces is a Clubhouse-like feature that allows you to create, use or join audio rooms directly on the platform. Because this feature is integrated into Twitter, creators don’t have to bother building a new audience or following to engage with their Twitter followers.
Twitter is currently testing Spaces on Android and iOS. Therefore, its features, especially the ability to create Space, are not widely available. The company also has plans to bring Twitter Spaces to a web version in the future.
Twitter spaces are currently public by default. Therefore anyone on Twitter can join Space Agan. However, you can mute the microphone and only allow others to join as listeners or leave the options open for them to decide. Although accounts with protected tweets cannot host Space, they can join Spaces hosted by other people. You can’t access the Space session after it ends. However, Twitter will retain a copy of the audio and text for 30 days.
According to Twitter, a total of 11 people, including the host, can talk simultaneously on Space. Apart from that, there is no limit on the number of listeners and you can ask hundreds or thousands of your followers to join at the same time. Your followers will see the active Space session at the top of the timeline.
