Twitter Begins Rolling Out Ticketed Spaces on iOS

Twitter has started rolling out its new Ticketed Spaces feature to iOS users, the company has announced.

twitter ticketed spaces
Twitter Spaces allow users to host live audio discussions that other users can listen in to. Now, some Twitter users on iOS will be able to create Ticketed Spaces that have a small fee to join, allowing hosts to make money from sales directly on the popular social media platform.

Users over the age of 18 who have hosted at least three Spaces in the past 30 days and have at least 1,000 followers have been able to apply to host Ticketed Spaces since June, but the feature has not been live until now.

Hosts receive 67 percent of the proceeds from ticket sales, with 30 percent going to Apple as an in-app purchase fee and three percent going to Twitter. If a host's total lifetime earnings on Twitter pass $50,000, then Twitter plans to raise its commission rate to 20 percent.

It is not clear how many users are now eligible to host Ticketed Spaces or when Twitter plans to roll out the functionality to all users. Even so, any iOS user is able to buy a ticket to join a Ticketed Spaces session.

4th paragraph

"Hosts receive 67 percent of the proceeds from ticket sales, with 30 percent going to Apple as an in-app purchase fee and three percent going to Twitter."


And I don't see where it says this feature if exclusive to U.S. users


It's kind of crazy how Apple's cut is 1000% bigger than Twitter's when Twitter is the one who created the app and feature and the service runs on Twitter's servers, not Apple's.
Literally the next sentence: "If a host's total lifetime earnings on Twitter pass $50,000, then Twitter plans to raise its commission rate to 20 percent."

Anyone else find it ridiculous that Twitter is HOSTING the service and only gets a three percent commission, while Apple is just the payment provider and gets a huge whopping 30%?

Shouldn't it be the other way around? No wonder people are up in arms about Apple forcing in-app purchase payments through their system with their ridiculous commissions.

It's almost as if Apple's terms are unfair. Twitter, a host, and viewers all agree to do business with one another, and because it's viewed on an iPhone Apple deserves a 30% cut? And Twitter, who did the heavy lifting, gets scraps at 3%? Ridiculous. And of course this cost will just be passed onto consumers in the form of higher prices from hosts.
