Twitter Spaces is where live audio conversations happen.

The conversation about you and your content is at its best on Twitter, and now you can Tweet and talk. Spaces unlocks conversations on Twitter with the depth and power only the human voice can bring. These ephemeral, live audio conversations allow for open, authentic, and unfiltered discussions, and there’s a Space for any and every topic and conversation, from small and intimate to millions of listeners.

Features & Functionality

Live audio

No need to be camera-ready — Spaces are audio, giving you the freedom and flexibility to start a conversation at any time, from anywhere. From home, on location, or at a sports game or awards show, you can bring the power of your voice straight to your audience.

Accessible and discoverable

At any point while hosting, listening, or speaking inside of a Space, you can tap the “View captions” button, which will allow you to see live captions of any host or speakers who have consented to having their speech in Spaces captioned. Live Spaces appear highlighted in purple at the top of your followers’ timelines, making them easy to find and join.

Share the mic

When you host a Space, you have complete control over mic access. Spaces can include up to 11 speakers at any one time, and once a Space has started, listeners can request speaker access from within the Space. Hosts can also utilize safety tools to remove or block accounts.

Contextualize the conversation

Set the mood by adding context to your Space by giving it a descriptive name and sharing relevant Tweets directly within the Space. There’s no limit to the number of Tweets you can add, and anyone who can speak in the Space can share a Tweet. Adding Tweets can help drive the conversation, and you can include any Tweet you like — not just your own.
