Twitter rolling out host-moderated audio conversation feature

TWITTER is rolling out Spaces, a feature for live audio conversations on the social media platform.

“Spaces is a place to come together, built around the voices of the people using Twitter, your Twitter community,” Twitter said on its website.

Spaces, available on iOS and Android, are live for as long as they are open. Unlike live conversations on other social media or video chat platforms, Spaces are not saved for future public viewing once ended.

“We will retain copies of Spaces for 30 days after they end to review for violations of the Twitter Rules. If a Space is found to contain a violation, we will extend the time we maintain a copy for an additional 90 days to give people the ability to appeal if they believe there was a mistake,” it said.

The new feature is currently being rolled out to a “very small group” to gather feedback.

“While anyone on iOS (and Android) will be able to join a Space, only people in the small group will be able to create Spaces. We will expand the list of people who can create Spaces over time,” Twitter said.

To start a Space, long press on “compose” and then tap the Spaces icon on the left.

Another way to start is by tapping on your profile photo in Fleets, scrolling to the right, and then tapping Spaces.

Twitter said up to 10 users can be invited to speak.

Spaces allow hosts to select who can join with speaking privileges by choosing from “everyone,” “people you follow,” or “only people you invite to speak.”

Ongoing Spaces automatically appear in the Fleets of a host’s followers. It also has a link for public sharing.

Because Spaces are public, anyone can join as a listener, Twitter said. “There is no limit on the number of listeners.” — Arjay L. Balinbin
