Twitter Space is a Clubhouse-like feature that lets you create or join live audio rooms on the platform. Since the feature is integrated directly into Twitter, creators don’t have to go through the hassle of building a new audience or following to engage with their Twitter followers.

Twitter Spaces is currently available on Android, iOS, and the web. However, the discoverability of active Spaces via the dedicated Spaces tab is limited to the mobile apps for now. You can schedule your Twitter Spaces and even record the Space session.

Twitter Spaces are public by default. As a result, anyone on Twitter can join your Space. You can, however, turn off the microphone and only allow others to join as listeners or keep the option open for them to decide. Although accounts with protected tweets can’t host a Space, they can join Spaces hosted by others. You can’t access a Space session once it ends. However, Twitter will retain copies of audio and captions for 30 days.

According to Twitter, a total of 11 people, including the host, can speak simultaneously in a Space. Plus, there is no limit on the number of listeners, and you can have hundreds or thousands of your followers join in at the same time. Your followers will see an active Space session at the top of the timeline in the now-dead Fleets section.

How to Create a Twitter Space

Step 1: Open the Twitter mobile app on your device and select the blue Plus sign icon in the lower right corner of your screen.

Step 2: From the menu that pops up, select Spaces.

Step 3: In the Create your space screen that appears, go ahead and name your Space, select its topics, and/or toggle on the Record space option (if you want to record your Space).

Step 4: Then choose the Start your space button. You may be prompted to permit Twitter to have access to your microphone.

You’ll then be prompted to invite people to join your Space if you’d like. If you’d rather not, select Skip. You can also share your Space via a Tweet by selecting the Share with a Tweet button.

When you’re done with your Space, choose the red End option in the top right corner of your Space. Then select Yes, end to confirm.

How to Join and Participate in a Twitter Space

If you’re following the Space host, you’ll see a purple Space indicator at the top of your timeline. You can tap on it and hit ‘Join this space’ to join in.

You have the option to join as a listener or speaker, but the host will have to approve your speech request before you can speak in the Space.

You can utilize emoji reactions to convey your emotions without having to speak in Twitter Spaces. To do so, tap on the emoji button (the heart with a plus icon) at the bottom right and pick one of the available emojis (no angry ? reacts, sadly.) All of the participants will see the emoji reaction on your Space avatar.
