Twitter Spaces is where live audio conversations happen.
The conversation about you and your content is at its best on Twitter, and now you can Tweet and talk. Spaces unlocks conversations on Twitter with the depth and power only the human voice can bring. These ephemeral, live audio conversations allow for open, authentic, and unfiltered discussions, and there’s a Space for any and every topic and conversation, from small and intimate to millions of listeners.
Live Spaces appear at the top of the timeline, making it easy for people to join yours.
It’s your Space, so you get to decide who can speak and when.
Live audio conversations allow you to connect with your audience in a new way.
Features & functionality
No need to be camera-ready — Spaces are audio, giving you the freedom and flexibility to start a conversation at any time, from anywhere. From home, on location, or at a sports game or awards show, you can bring the power of your voice straight to your audience.
Accessible & discoverable
At any point while hosting, listening, or speaking inside of a Space, you can tap the “Turn on captions” button, which will allow you to see live captions of any host or speakers who have consented to having their speech in Spaces captioned. Live Spaces appear highlighted in purple at the top of your followers’ timelines, making them easy to find and join, and you can assign up to three topics to a Space you host, to help make your Space more discoverable. Look out for the Spaces tab (currently available in English and on iOS) where you’ll be able to listen to and discover live Spaces, recorded Spaces, and podcasts.
Share the mic
When you host a Space, you have complete control over mic access. Spaces can include up to 11 speakers at any one time (including the primary host), and once a Space has started, listeners can request speaker access from within the Space. Hosts can invite up to two co-hosts to help moderate the conversation, and hosts can also utilize safety tools to remove or block accounts.
Contextualize the conversation
Set the mood by adding context to your Space by giving it a descriptive name and sharing relevant Tweets directly within the Space. There’s no limit to the number of Tweets you can add, and anyone who can speak in the Space can share a Tweet. Adding Tweets can help drive the conversation, and you can include any Tweet you like — not just your own.
Recording and clipping
Let great conversations live on with recorded Spaces and clipping. Hosts can record a Space for anyone to listen to and share after the Spaces is over. Clips are captured 30 second moments that anyone on iOS, Android, and web can make and share, and a clip shared within a Tweet renders as a card which includes audio as well as a visual transcription.
