Almost a year after its launch, Twitter makes the creation of stanze audio Spaces, which previously could only host users with more than 600 followers. The function arrives on both Android and iOS, making it easier to take advantage of the Clubhouse clone on your platform.
Twitter, now everyone can host Spaces audio rooms
In the first half of 2020, Clubhouse stole the show by launching the audio room concept. A virtual place in which to discuss related topics, discussing what interests most without the need for video support. The other social networks immediately fell in love with that idea and started developing it. Twitter was among the fastest, launching Spaces as early as last November. A concept similar to Clubhouse but enhanced by the other features of the chirp platform.
At the time, however, only iOS users with more than 600 followers could host Twitter Spaces. As early as April, the company announced that it would remove these prerequisites. And today it finally keeps that promise. On both Android and iOS there is also one GIF that quickly explains how to do it when you log into the platform, so everyone’s memory is refreshed. You can find it below.

While the hype of audio rooms is waning, they remain a good way to engage your community on common topics. Or simply for comment together a movie you are watching.
While this news comes later than the initial announcement, it should be noted that Twitter has rolled out new features for creators throughout the year. Both for Spaces, with the ability to add co-hosts up to 10 speakers in the same audio room. But it also created a creators fund created the Spark program in addition to throwing Ticketed Spaces, which allows you to charge a ticket to anyone who enters your Space.
Clubhouse, however, does not seem willing to give in to the competition, having opened access to all without an invitation since July. However, it is necessary to understand if this mode of expression will remain in general culture, or if this passion for audio rooms will fade. What do you think about it? Will you try the Twitter Spaces feature?
