With an eye on the popularity of Clubhouse, the new social network everyone is talking about, Twitter launched “spaces”, a small experiment still in beta testing. This is a feature that allows users to create live audio chat rooms. This is another possibility of interaction between users with a twitter account, which will soon make the feature available to all users. Curious to learn more?

Have you heard of Spaces? This new Twitter feature, which comes to rival Clubhouse, allows users to create spaces for live audio chat rooms, with the ability to open up conversations for everyone in the room to speak or with the ability for the moderator to limit interaction focused on the intimacy of the users.
Unlike Clubhouse, which for now is only available by invitation and to Apple device owners, Twitter Spaces is to be made available to all users as a new way to interact. Still in early stages of development, this feature works, for the time being, for a few people only.
Twitter informs that if a user does not yet have access to the feature, if invited by another user, access to Spaces is automatically released. Still only available for users of devices with iOS, for now it is not expected to come to Android, according to the social network.
The way the social media has developed the Space chats work as follows: the owner of the room can invite other Twitter users to chat via a direct message, room link or tweet. Therefore, it is not necessary for the person to be a follower in order to be invited.
The moderator has several tools to organize who can talk in the rooms, and can even block or exclude users if necessary. It is also possible to report or block users who do not behave appropriately.
Another new feature of Twitter Spaces is the possibility of not only communicating by voice, but also using emojis to interact. Once sent, messages can be viewed while the room is open. Once the moderator closes the room, all content can no longer be accessed.
