Twitter Space Guidelines
Oftentimes, new entrants miss out on understanding a few things about spaces. To make things easy for you, we’d give you a sneak peek into the Spaces in this blog. Spaces give a good amount of control to its host. This is one of the most important reasons for Twitter Spaces to be successful. Anyone who wants to talk in a particular Space needs the host’s approval. As soon as the host adds a speaker, he/she can talk to the entire audience. Twitter currently allows as many as 11 speakers at a given point in time. Hosts are also allowed to download the conversation too. Twitter holds the Spaces conversation for 30 days in case where “review for violations of the Twitter Rules” is needed.
If a speaker goes out of limits or talks non-relevant things, the host can mute the speaker straight away. In worst cases, hosts can remove speakers from a Space too. Hence it is easier to maintain appropriate conversations in Spaces. The listeners have the option to react to the speaker. That adds some interest.
Twitter allows listeners to access captions when a speaker is talking. Also, there is no time limit set for Spaces as by Twitter. Hosts have an option to share tweets in the Spaces too. In this way, they can present, demonstrate or run a conversation very easily.
Joining a Space is easy. You can follow the link shared by the host or you can straight away jump into Spaces of people you follow. Since Spaces are publicly hosted, there is no need for any permissions to enter any Space.
