Twitter Spaces started off as a Clubhouse clone to give Twitter users an opportunity to interact with each other in an audio-only format. It has received a lot of new features and changes since the early release that makes it better to use. In the same direction, Spaces is releasing a new update that adds the ability to add co-hosts.
The newly added Twitter Spaces co-hosts functionality is primarily meant to help the main host share responsibility of managing the space. A host can choose to add up to two co-hosts which would result in a total of three hosts. All co-hosts will get access to the same Space management settings as the main host.
It goes without saying that it will be up to the main host to invite who should be the co-host. Similarly, it will be up to the invited user whether to become a co-host. All settings that you will get to use include the ability to mute people, pin tweets, and block people who are not behaving appropriately among others. It should be noted that one co-host cannot invite other people to become a co-host.
making it easier to manage your Space…introducing co-hosting!— Spaces (@TwitterSpaces) August 5, 2021
- hosts have two co-host invites they can send
- the table just got bigger: 1 host, 2 co-hosts, and 10 speakers
- co-hosts can help invite speakers, manage requests, remove participants, pin Tweets and more! pic.twitter.com/s76JFbhTL2
With this change, a single Space can have one host, two co-hosts, and up to 10 speakers. The feature rollout has already begun and should become available for all Twitter users in the coming days. If you are not seeing it already, we would suggest you wait for some time.
