Twitter Opens Spaces to All Users With More Than 600 Followers

Beginning on Monday, Twitter will enable anyone with at least 600 followers on its platform to host Spaces, its version of the audio room network Clubhouse.

Twitter Feature
Announced via a blog post, Twitter says that its decision to open up the functionality to users with at least 600 followers came following feedback from Twitter users and the community. Spaces originally launched last year, but so far only certain Twitter users have had access to the feature.

Today, we’re bringing the ability to host a Space to all accounts with 600 or more followers on Twitter. Based on what we’ve learned so far, these accounts are likely to have a good experience hosting live conversations because of their existing audience.

Twitter in March said that Spaces would be available to everyone by April, and with that timeframe now having passed, the company says it still wants to learn and hear more from users before it officially switches the feature on for all users.

Before bringing the ability to create a Space to everyone, we’re focused on learning more, making it easier to discover Spaces, and helping people enjoy them with a great audience.

Alongside the wider pool of users with access to Spaces, Twitter also revealed that it is working on the ability for users to pay for tickets to attend Spaces as a way to monetize the feature. Twitter says it will only take a "small amount" of commission from the ticket sales.

Another platform for those who like to speak, yet have nothing to say. Just what we need.

Twitter is trash. Delete your account and don’t look back.

I only have six followers. I just use it to read stuff and retweet. I rarely tweet unless it’s a question to a developer or company.

Twitter is full of security holes. Every few months, my account shows I'm following someone that I never followed, typically someone that posts in an Arabic script that I don't understand.
But it is mainly full of free speech suppressing and blatant censorship. Became irrelevant. Leave it, find some other freedom backing alternative. Shares starting to plummet.
