What Are Twitter Spaces?
Twitter spaces are free live audio chat rooms that allow Twitter users to start audio conversations on various topics and interact with other Twitter users through audio.
Topics discussed on the various Twitter spaces are focused on a particular industry, interest, or region.
Influencers and creators are attracting new followers by interacting with users on their Twitter Spaces. Any Twitter user can join any space being organized on the platform.
Twitter spaces are available on iOS, Android, and desktop.
Any user can join a space as a listener and start listening to the topic being discussed. Users can also request to be made speakers for them to add their opinions to whatever is being discussed.
If you’re new to Twitter, Twitter spaces can help you learn about interesting topics or people in your field.
Before you join a Twitter space, make sure it’s worth your time—it doesn’t make sense to join thousands of followers in an audio-conferencing room if you don’t plan on contributing much (or anything) yourself.
