An Introduction to Twitter Spaces

Twitter Spaces is a new feature on Twitter that has been gaining traction recently. It allows users to join or host live audio conversations with up to ten people. It’s similar to Clubhouse.

With Twitter Spaces, users can join or create a “space” to hear and talk with other users in real time. Users can mute, block, or report other users if they feel the conversation is inappropriate.

It also has a built-in transcription feature, which allows users to read the conversation instead of listening.

However, to create audio chat rooms as a host or join them as a speaker or listener, you need more than 600 followers.
