What is Twitter Spaces
The function seeks to create voice chat rooms, the functionality was launched in March 2021 and was initially available only to a small group of people. Weeks later the possibility that all users could access it was announced.
Twitter enabled the feature for all its users
Through Spaces, Twitter users can communicate by voice directly with other people. Spaces is a Twitter tool with which they seek to return to “emotion, nuances and empathy”, as well as the spontaneity of the messages that they write lose intentionality.
One of the characteristics of these digital spaces is that those who create them will have “complete control over who can or cannot speak.” Listeners can react live with emojis based on what they want to communicate when listening to speakers.
There are also tools to report, block and share tweets from Spaces. It is a feature that seeks to take care of dialogue spaces so that there is no digital harassment.
In addition, the social network created by Jack Dorsey updated the functions to satisfy users after months of using and listening to the tools that are needed. Now you can also tweet from a Space and search for upcoming conversations by title or host.
Any account can start their own Twitter Space
The function to create and join Spaces is available both on Android as on iOS. From both types of devices, the publication of tweets with the hashtag of the Space and a link to the live audio is allowed.
What happens in Twitter Spaces stays in Spaces: once the transmission is finished, the conversation is not stored in any file, on the cell phone, or on the web. For this reason, if you want to save the audio, it is necessary to have a sound or screen recorder application.
