Even Clubhouse is just a beta test for Android users, its main competitor in the live sound room segment, Twitter ‘Spaces’ has opened up to both iOS and Android users. Anyone with at least 600 followers on Twitter now has the Spaces feature.
This is, of course, a major push on Twitter. ”Spaces has been in limited test mode so far On Android, while on iOS, it was partially introduced.
Twitter now seems to have won the Clubhouse as it competed in the Android user market.
But why do 600 followers mean?
600 followers or more is an interesting number. Why did Twitter choose it?
Well, in our own words, “We’re bringing the opportunity to host space for all accounts with at least 600 followers on Twitter. Based on the information we’ve received so far, these accounts are likely to have a good live experience. Discussions for their current audience. we focus on learning more, making it easier to find Spaces, and helping people enjoy them with the general public. “
Spaces hosts can also start paying soon
Ticket facilities: We strive to find hosts to reward the experiences they create and give listeners access exclusively to the packages that are most important to them. soon we will be testing the ticket facilities with a small group where the hosts can set the ticket prices and quantity pic.twitter.com/uHxxvmo3wCMay 3, 2021
In addition to opening the Spaces feature to virtually everyone, Twitter has also announced a new ticketing feature, the Spaces option, which is currently being tested with selected users.
This feature allows Spaces audio hosts to charge listeners a tuning fee. This is clearly the first step in commercializing the Spaces feature.
Twitter cuts these events, but it’s not yet clear what percentage Twitter will take.
“A limited group may host ticket offices in the coming months. The hosts will earn most of the ticket sales and Twitter will also keep a small amount,” the company said.
Clearly, Twitter is particularly keen to help users commercialize the platform. It already works Super Followers and Tip Jar features.
Twitter will also be releasing the Spaces schedule and Spaces reminders in the coming weeks, which will help keep your audience more connected.
With Facebook also plans to get a voice chat feature, the segment is warming up and interesting.
