Articles about Twitter Spaces
Twitter Spaces in a real-time audio-based mode of engagement Twitter offers to its users. The feature was introduced on the microblogging platform in December 2020 following the stellar success of Clubhouse, an invite-only audio-based social media platform that allowed people to host discussion rooms with few other people while everyone else could listen in on the conversation and participate using comments, just like a podcast happening live. Twitter’s Spaces follows a similar approach and provides Spaces for people to interact. A plethora of monetization options in the form of ticketing, co-hosting, and brand-led collaborations are also available for creators. An in-session Space will be indicated by a purple bubble at the top of your timeline. A Twitter user can also set reminders to join an upcoming Twitter space. The audio-based social media scene has grown increasingly competitive in 2021 with a host of Big Tech social media platforms creating their versions of Clubhouse. Twitter Spaces is one such platform although it does enough to distinguish itself from the pack that includes Facebook Live Audio Rooms and Discord’s Stage Channels.
