How to use Twitter spaces on android
Currently, to host space on Twitter you need to have at least 600 or more followers. Twitter says the accounts are likely to have a good experience hosting live conversations because of their existing audience.
How to start space on Twitter
On android open the Twitter app and then tap on your profile and scroll right and tap on Spaces. Name your space and start inviting people. ( Note: Accounts with protected Tweets are not able to create spaces)
Spaces are public, so anyone can join as a Listener, including people who don’t follow you. You can also invite people through tweets and sending links via D.M.
Once space has started, the Host can send requests to Listeners to become Speakers by tapping on the people icon and adding speakers or tapping on a person’s profile picture within a space and adding them as a Speaker.
Listeners can request permission to speak from the Host by tapping on the Request icon below the microphone.
How to view spaces and join
When someone you follow starts or speaks in a Space, it’ll appear at the top of your timeline as a purple bubble for as long as it’s live. When you join a Space as a listener, you can react to what you hear with emojis, check out any pinned Tweets, follow along with captions, Tweet or DM Space, or request to speak.
This is how you can start using spaces on Twitter. This is a new kind of trend everybody is excited about. Soon a lot more social media companies are going to embed this feature into their own social platforms.
