The Clubhouse-like Audio Rooms feature called Twitter Spaces will now allow hosts to designate up to two co-hosts for its social audio rooms, making it easier for hosts of the audio space to help manage and moderate conversations.
First introduced last year, with a major expansion this May, Twitter Spaces will now allow one main host, two additional co-hosts, and up to 10 speakers. Additional co-hosts will make the task of moderation much more manageable, as they’ll be able to vet speaker requests, tap speakers, and give anyone in the Space the boot.
The co-host feature also expands the number of participants that can talk at once in a Space: now you can have one host, two co-hosts, and ten speakers all active in a room at once, up from the previous ten-speaker limit.
This being said, only the main host can invite or remove other users as co-hosts, and one co-host can’t invite a second one.
Just about a week ago, a Twitter update made Twitter Spaces easier to discover and share. The update allowed users to directly tweet from a Live Space on Android and iOS devices. While users could earlier publish a tweet while listening to a conversation on Spaces, the new tweet composer directly in the Space made it much easier.
Twitter also added more features to the iOS app, which got new ‘guest management’ controls and search features for Spaces.
