Twitter opens up Clubhouse-style ‘Spaces’ to many more users


‘Spaces’ is Twitter’s equivalent of Clubhouse: a feature that enables people to create virtual rooms and hold live audio discussions. Now it’s opening up in a big way beyond its initial invitation-only audience.

“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,” announced the company.

This means the feature should be available to many more professional musicians among others. That’s good news, because Spaces has potential for artists to jump on at short notice to hold Q&As with fans, for example.

We’ll be interested to see what other uses artists (not to mention other music industry figures) find for it in the coming weeks.
