Audio-based social networking has become the hottest trend in the world right now, and to cash in on the virality, Twitter has introduced audio chat rooms called Spaces within the app. Twitter Spaces is almost like talking to people in real-time via voice notes. It lets you join, listen, and speak. These Spaces are public, so anyone can join as a listener, including people who don’t follow you. You can invite up to 10 listeners to your Space by sending them a link.
Who can use Twitter Spaces
If you have an iOS or an Android device, you can join, listen to, and talk in a Space, but only a small group of people on iOS can currently create Spaces. Twitter says the feature will be made available to everyone by April this year.
How to create your Twitter Space
Twitter Spaces can easily be created on iPhone via the app. Here’s how.
- Open Twitter on iPhone and tap on your profile picture at the top left corner of the screen.
- Scroll to the far right and tap Spaces.
- Pick who can speak by choosing from Everyone, People you follow, or Only people you invite to speak.
- Now, tap Start your Space.
- You can now add up to 10 speakers to join your Space.
- Your Twitter Space will start. You’ll now have the option to add a description or name to your Space.
- Now, tap on the three dots at the bottom and go to Adjust Settings to make changes according to your preference. You can choose whether or not you want to see captions by enabling or disabling View Captions.
- You can then allow mic access to Speakers by toggling Allow mic to on.
- Get started chatting in your Space.
- When you wish to end the session, tap Leave at the top right corner.
How to join Twitter Spaces
It’s quite easy to join Twitter Spaces. You can do this from Twitter for Android and iPhone. Here’s how.
- Open Twitter.
- You’ll automatically see if someone has started a Space at the top of your timeline, just beside Fleets.
- Tap the profile of the person who has started Space.
- Tap Join this Space.
- You will be connected and added to Space.
- When you wish to speak, you can request mic access from the host.
- Once the host accepts your request, your mic will be on. You can now start speaking.
The Host of a Space will have control over who can speak. They can also remove, report, and block others in the Space.

Twitter likely to roll out ‘Reactions’ feature soon
After unveiling several features this year, micro-blogging site Twitter is reportedly readying new features, including Reactions, Downvotes and Sorted Replies for iOS users.
According to reverse engineer Nima Owji, the Reactions feature, which started being tested a couple of months ago, is set to launch soon, reports 9To5Mac.
With four new reactions, “tears of joy,” “thinking face,” “clapping hands” and “crying face,” this feature is designed to give users the ability to better show how conversations make them feel and to give users “a better understanding of how their Tweets are received”.
Citing the reverse engineer, the report also mentioned that the micro-blogging site is now able to store data about the downvotes feature, which is another indicator that this function will be released sooner rather than later.
The report also notes that the company changed the downvote position as well. It has even added a new tab explaining how downvotes work.
This month, the company has rolled out its in-app tipping feature to all Android users above the age of 18, following the iOS launch in September.
Twitter said the “Tips” feature is geared toward users looking to get a little financial support from their followers through Cash App, PayPal, Venmo and Patreon directly through the app.
Elon Musk has sold more than half of the Tesla stock that Twitter informed him.
Tesla shares have fallen 10% since Musk conducted a Tweet poll about the sale. They dropped more than 17% within the first few days following the Nov.
Twitter Investigating Bug Causing Unexpected Logouts on iOS 15
Posts on Twitter over the last several hours have shown users experiencing the bug, with some sharing frustrations that the app is requiring them to log back into Twitter upon every app launch. While some of the reports lack the specificity that the bug is happening on iOS devices, it seems likely to be the case following the acknowledgment from Twitter itself.
