TWITTER SPACES — Twitter was reportedly working on bringing support for speaking in Spaces to the web.
It was last May when Twitter added support for its users to join Spaces through the web app. Currently, the team behind the said feature was working on letting people speak through the web app as well.
According to developer Nima Owji, Twitter was working on the ability to let its users join a conversation through the web app.
As for now, Twitter users can only speak in a Spaces room if they’re on the Android or iOS apps of Twitter. Although Owji was able to show how the said feature was going to work, he said that not everything was completely ready as the reaction button wasn’t currently working.
After months in public beta, Twitter Spaces was formally launched for users with at least 600 followers by the beginning of May.
The said feature lets users create live rooms with up to 10 people speaking and unlimited number of users can join to listen.
With Twitter Spaces, Twitter expected to “pen conversations on the platform with the authenticity and nuance, depth and power only the human voice can bring”.
Also, Twitter let some users in the United States created Ticketed Spaces, which means that it needed to pay from USD 1 up to USD 999 for a user to join the conversation, which was a way Twitter found to help monetize its platform and to bring more creators producing content specifically for Twitter.
Twitter had been pushing hard to make its platform even more attractive to its users in recent months. Recently, Twitter relaunched its verification program and was testing its subscription-plan “Twitter Blue” in selected countries as well.
