Newsdelivers.com – Since its release, Twitter has managed to attract the attention of many users around the world. Over time, there have been many changes or updates made by Twitter. Whether it’s about the appearance, layout, the availability of a dark screen mode, even the Fleet feature which has now been replaced with Twitter Spaces.
The existence of Fleet apparently not so attractive to most users so that Twitter negates it again. To keep users’ attention, Twitter has now replaced Fleet with Twitter Spaces, a feature that allows users to host and participate in live audio conversations. In other words Twitter Spaces are audio chat rooms.
Well, for the use of Twitter Spaces itself, it might still be in between Twitter user who are still not familiar with this feature. That’s why brilio.net introduces five ways to use Twitter Space for a broader experience. The following review is extracted from the hootsuite page, Tuesday (21/9).

> If you are using iOS, just long press the Compose button then select the Spaces icon which is a circle in the shape of a diamond.
2. Activate the text feature.
When you first host or talk to a Space, Twitter will ask for your consent to have your chat texted. This will allow users to view live subtitles while listening to Space. As the host, you must enable captions for your Space. It is highly recommended that your channel is accessible and inclusive for all listeners.
3. Add a description.
This feature adds your description to let listeners know what chat room they are in. Since the text is limited to only 70 characters, you should keep your description short and concise. For the Space title itself, Twitter makes the default (Your Twitter Name Space) and cannot be changed.
4. Added speakers in Twitter Spaces.
This feature allows you to add 10 people (in addition to the host itself) as speakers. You can choose from 3 options for speakers: everyone, people you follow, or only people you invite.
Of course you can always change this setting while in Twitter Spaces. If you select “only people you invite,” then you can send invites to speakers via Direct Message (DM).
When a Space goes live, you can approve requests to speak from listeners. Each approved speaker will count towards the 10 speaker limit.
If you have problems with these speakers, as the host you can delete, report, or block them. Note that if you block a user in the Twitter Space, you will also block them on Twitter completely.
5. How to end Twitter Spaces.
Hosts can end the audio space by tapping ‘Leave’ in the top right. Automatically, this will end it for everyone. After the Space expires, the Space is no longer available to the user. Twitter will retain a copy of the audio and text for 30 days if it needs to review the conversation for any rule violations.
During these 30 days (which extends to 90 days if requested), hosts can download a copy of Space’s data including transcripts if captions are enabled.
