About Twitter Spaces

By January 13, 2022Blogposts

Spaces is a new way to have live audio conversations on Twitter.

The functionality provides additional value to your Spaces content, which can now be re-shared to spark more interest, while also facilitating broader re-target considerations.

How do you start a Space?

  1. The creator of a Space is the host. As a host on iOS, you can start a Space in two ways: Long press on the Tweet compose on your Home timeline and then tap the new Spaces icon (multiple circles forming a diamond shape) on the far left. Or, tap on your profile image at the top of your timeline.
  2. Spaces are public, so anyone can join as a listener, including people who don’t follow you. Listeners can be directly invited into a Space by D Ming them a link to the Space, Tweeting out a link, or sharing a link elsewhere.
  3. Up to 13 people (including the host and 2 co-hosts) can speak in a Space at any given time. When creating a new Space, you will see options to Name your Space and Start your Space.
  4. To schedule a Space, tap Schedule for later. Choose the date and time you’d like your Space to go live.
  5. Once the Space has started, the host can send requests to listeners to become co-hosts or speakers by tapping on the people icon and adding co-hosts or speakers, or tapping on a person’s profile picture within a Space and adding them as a co-host or speaker. Listeners can request permission to speak from the host by tapping on the Request icon below the microphone.
  6. When creating a Space, the host will join with their mic off and be the only speaker in the Space. When ready, tap Start your Space.
  7. Allow mic access (speaking ability) to speakers by toggling Allow mic access to on.
  8. As the host, your Space will automatically serve live captions.
  9. As a listener, choose whether or not you want to see captions by tapping the Show captions button in your Spaces settings.
  10. If you’re hosting, make sure to Tweet out the link to your Space so other people can join. Tap on the icon to Share via a Tweet.

Who can start a Space?
