Twitter is adding another feature, “Topics” to Spaces. Topics will allow hosts to add tags to their Spaces to help users find their audio rooms easily. You can add up to three relevant topics so that like-minded individuals can find you.
The functionality is currently restricted. It’s only available to Android users, and there are only ten Topics in total that users can pick from. The Topics are only available in English. Twitter, on the other hand, claimed that iOS support is on the way and that the number of accessible Topics will expand “as we create together.”
Business and Finance, Music, Sports, Technology, Gaming, World News, Entertainment, Arts and Culture, Home and Family, and Careers are among the first ten Topics available on Twitter, which individuals may select to follow to get relevant content on their timelines.
What they are saying
The company announced in a tweet, “new in Spaces: Topics! when creating or scheduling a Space, some of you on Android can choose up to 3 Topics to tag it with from a list of our top 10 Topics. BUT it’s only 10 Topics for now and we’ll expand as we build together. English only (also for now!), iOS soon.”
The addition of topics to Twitter Spaces makes it function very closely to how Clubhouse works. Clubhouse has different topics and clubs where users can explore and join based on their preferences.
Since launching Spaces, Twitter has been constantly upgrading it to make it better for users. In recent months, the company started rolling out Ticketed Spaces as a way to support creators on Twitter for their time and effort in hosting.
