Audio-based social media has become the hottest trend globally, and to capitalize on the virality, Twitter has introduced audio chat rooms called Spaces within the app. Twitter Spaces is almost like talking to people in real-time through voice memos. It allows you to join, listen and speak. These spaces are public, so anyone can join as listeners, including people who don’t follow you. You can invite up to 10 listeners to your Space by sending them a link.
Who can use Twitter Spaces
If you have an iOS or Android device, you can join, listen, and speak in a space, but only a small group of people on iOS can currently create spaces. Twitter says the feature will be available to everyone in April this year.
How to create your Twitter space
Twitter spaces can be easily created on iPhone through the app. That is how.
- Open Twitter on iPhone and tap on your profile picture in the upper left corner of the screen.
- Scroll to the far right and tap Spaces.
- Choose who can speak by choosing between Everyone, The people you follow, or Only the people you invite to speak.
- Now touch Start your Space.
- Now you can add up to 10 speakers to join your Space.
- Your Twitter space will start. You will now have the option to add a description or a name to your Space.

- You can then allow the microphone access to the speakers by toggling Allow microphone to in.

- When you want to end the session, touch License in the upper right corner.
