“We are experimenting with new ways to help you discover more rooms. For some of you, on iOS and Android, if someone you follow is joining a Spaces room, you will see them at the top of your home. You can choose who can see your activities on Spaces via the settings. “
In fact, if you want your followers to see if you are listening to a Space or not, the new option is found in the Twitter privacy and security settings. A recent leak also suggests that Twitter wants to expand Spaces further, allowing users to listen to a Space again after it has finished. At the moment, in fact, you can only join a room when it is live. Obviously, as always, all that remains is to wait for official news from the platform.
