Twitter Spaces Android US is the latest app released from Twitter. The app offers a lot of interesting features for the users. For instance, it has a group audio feature and ticketed spaces. Another interesting feature of this application is that you can also use the Clipping tool.
Ticketed Spaces on Twitter is a new feature introduced by Twitter that allows users to host exclusive live audio experiences and monetise it. This is done through the sale of tickets. Users can charge up to $999 for a ticketed session. In return, creators can earn up to 97% of the revenue earned from the ticket sales.
To qualify for the Ticketed Spaces feature, you must have at least 1,000 followers. You must also have hosted three Spaces sessions within the last 30 days. If you meet these criteria, you will be eligible for a beta test.
Twitter will take a 3% cut of your earnings. However, this fee is less than Apple’s 30% gatekeeping charge. After the platform fee, your earnings will reduce to 80%.
Creators can host a variety of events including workshops, meet-and-greets, or just to chat with fans. The company will also let you use the Ticketed Spaces feature to sell tickets for a limited number of seats.
Group audio feature
For the uninitiated, Twitter has been quietly testing a new feature that lets you record and play back an audio Space, albeit a teeny bit sluggishly. A lucky few are already benefiting from it. And it’s not just iOS users; Twitter is testing it on Android devices too. Obviously, there are no guarantees that it will ever become mainstream, but it does seem like Twitter isn’t putting all of its eggs in one basket.
As mentioned earlier, Twitter has been busy adding new features to Spaces. One notable addition is the Spaces Tab for Android users. Now, in addition to the usual list of followers and followees, you can also have conversations with people you’re not following on Twitter. Basically, this is like an in-app DM for a live Space.
In other Spaces news, a select few hosts on iOS will now be able to clip a full 30 seconds of a recorded Space, and then share the resulting audio clip on their timelines. Another cool thing is that you can now see a count of all the people who are talking during a particular Space.
The Twitter Spaces Android and iOS applications now have support for the oh so olde audio clipping triumvirate. It’s only a matter of time before we see the same technology rolled out on Windows and macOS. So, if you’re into live audio, you’re in luck.
Twitter execs like John Hodges and Kevin Rose have already teased us with details on a forthcoming feature that will put the aforementioned tool to good use. As the saying goes, you’ll need to start planning your next Spaces sesh ahead of time. But don’t fret, the service is bound to improve over time. We’re looking forward to seeing what the future holds.
The company also released a new augmented reality app that lets users add interactive stickers to photos and video to create an immersive social experience. While this may not be the best use of your phone if you’re the type who likes to share your snarks, it will certainly be an entertaining pastime for anyone who likes to reminisce.
Live audio chat rooms are slowly dying
The Twitter Spaces feature is a new addition to the social networking platform. It allows users to participate in live audio conversations. Those interested can host their own room, or listen to others’ rooms.
Twitter Spaces is similar to the popular Clubhouse app. The former was an invitation-only app that allowed users to follow celebrities and events live. Despite being successful, it had a short lifespan. Ultimately, its exclusivity was a factor in its waning popularity.
Twitter Spaces is still evolving. However, it can be a valuable tool for brands. By weighing the pros and cons of each platform, brands can find a solution that works for them.
One way to get started on Spaces is to invite friends to join you. You can send a direct message to them or send a link to the Space you’re creating.
You can also create your own conversation room. Like conference calls, people in the room choose topics that interest them. When the conversation is finished, the room is closed.
