Live audio conversations also feature built-in safety controls.
Twitter has been busy testing out Spaces since last year and just the other day it has announced that the new platform will be available for all users that have more than 600 followers. Based on recent testing and feedback, accounts with this many followers will be able to have a good experience in hosting live conversations.
Twitter said that through Spaces, users are able to listen to voices behind Tweets presented in a live format. It also encourages open conversations on Twitter with the authenticity that only a ‘human voice could bring’. It can also range from intimate conversations between a few people or big discussions about current relevant topics today.
Spaces can be easily accessed on the top of the Twitter timeline. As a listener, you can easily join and reacting emojis or even check out the pinned Tweets as well as follow captions and Tweeting and DM’ing the Space. If you’re the speaker, you can pin Tweets and turn on captions and control everything inside the Space.
Twitter also added that Spaces has built-in safety controls for both the hosts and the speakers. Hosts are able to mute all speakers at the same time, including a new management page to control other features. Additionally, anyone can also report and block others in the Space, including the ability to report the Space.
Twitter also added that more features are being added to Spaces soon, including Ticketed Spaces that allow you to pay for additional content, the ability to schedule and set reminders, host with others, and better accessibility.
Spaces is now available through the official Twitter app on iOS and Android devices.
