Twitter Spaces add options for co-hosting

Twitter was wrong about introducing Fleets on its platform. Fleets feature was taken down after eight months because of its unsuccessfulness. But the company is not stopping the addition of new features regularly to its Spaces. Spaces is the company’s audio-only platform just like Clubhouse. 

Spaces is getting a new feature. The platform will now allow more than one host. Out of this, one will be the main host and it can have two co-hosts and ten speakers. Co-hosts will make it easier to carry out the moderation with the option to vet speaker requests, tap speakers, and even remove participants. 

The Spaces feature is the only thing above the main feed in the Twitter app now. Earlier it also had Fleets. Twitter is also working on a dedicated tab for making it easier to discover Spaces showcasing live audio rooms in real-time. 

Many companies added live audio chat rooms after the successful run of Clubhouse. Spotify’s Greenroom and Facebook’s Live Audio Rooms are other examples. Discord has also added similar event channels in its already successful audio-based chat platform. Since Fleets was taken down by the company, it is now focusing on improving Spaces and we can hope that it won’t go down just like Fleets.
