Microblogging site Twitter Last year announced Spaces and since then it has been testing with a limited group, and have found that hearing people’s voices bring conversations on Twitter to life in a completely new way.
Twitter said in their blog post, ” 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. 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.”

How the spaces will work :
On Twitter for iOS and Android, when someone you follow starts or speaks in a Space, it’ll appear at the top of your timeline as a purple bubble for as long as it’s live. When you join a Space as a listener, you can react to what you hear with emojis, check out any pinned Tweets, follow along with captions, Tweet or DM Space, or request to speak.
When you join Space as a speaker, in addition to talking, you can pin Tweets to Space, turn on captions so everyone can follow along with what you’re saying, and Tweet Space so your followers can join.
When you create a space, you’re in control – who’s speaking, the topics, and the vibe. Invite people to join by Tweeting or DM’ing them to jump in and then invite them to speak directly from your Space. From there, talk about whatever is happening in your world,
