For web3 musicians and Space's hosts, sharing your music on Twitter Space is perhaps the most basic experience of all. To put things in perspective imagine if all of your artistic prowess, sophisticated arrangements, and faultless mixing are relocated to a rural location in the 1950s at the quality of an FM radio, and people from all around the world tune in.

What Is Twitter Spaces?

Users of Twitter Spaces can host and join live audio sessions that are held within "Spaces" (aka audio chat rooms). An Audio only medium, Twitter Space creates an intimate moment between fans and host where unique content is shared LIVE, with no edits, no retakes, raw.

How do The Best Twitter Spaces work?

When someone you follow begins or talks in a Space on Twitter for iOS or Android, it will show up on your timeline as a purple bubble for as long as it is live. When you join Space as a listener, you may use emojis to express your opinions. You can also look at any Tweets that have been pinned in the room, read along with the captions, tweet or direct message the Space itself, and even ask to speak yourself.

How Can I Create A Twitter Space As A Host?

Luckily, Twitter made this part simple enough for everyone. Long-press the compose button on your Home timeline, then choose the icon with a cluster of dots to begin a Space. When you initially create your Space, your microphone will be off; when you're ready to talk, press Start your Space.

The whole thing will be live, so unless you have been a live broadcaster for 20 years of your professional career, it's best to have practiced a few times or at least to have some kind of point-form script so you stay on topic. Everyone likes a good rant, but your fans might have an issue with rambling.

How Can I Add A Co-Host On Twitter Spaces?

You can have up to ten speakers in your Space. As the host, you can choose up to two co-hosts to assist you to moderate the discussion. Any active participant or visitor to your space is welcome. To accomplish this, hit the manage speakers icon, choose invite co-hosts, and then look for and choose the accounts you want to share hosting duties with for your Space. Tap the send invitation button to let them know.

How Can I Schedule A Twitter Space?

You may advertise your planned chat for a longer period if you schedule a Space in advance. Long-press the write button on your Home timeline, then choose the Spaces symbol to plan a Space. Give your Space a name, choose three or more pertinent topics, and then hit the clock icon to choose a time and date for it.

How Can I Join The Best Twitter Spaces?

Public spaces can be joined in a variety of ways. A host or listener can post the public link for each Space in a Tweet or Direct Message. Live Spaces with a speaker or presenter you follow will also be marked in purple at the top of your timeline and in your timeline itself. On your phone, you may join by using the Spaces Tab.

How Does Using The Twitter Spaces Help Musicians?

Without a doubt, every brand may gain by interacting with their followers or potential followers on social media. These advantages are amplified when the engagement is sincere, ongoing, and beneficial. The ideal opportunity to introduce such a discussion to your fan audience is provided by Twitter Spaces! 

Here are some ways you as an artist might benefit from using Twitter Spaces:

  1. Make a regular industry area where you may post news and updates about the music biz and other topics of interest to your audience.
  2. Share new music, merchandise, and services that will keep your audience informed about what they can stream or buy to support you as a musician.
  3. For your fan base to feel more connected to you and comprehend your brand, arrange a live Q&A discussion where they can ask you anything about your music or yourself.
  4. Discuss related issues that are important to you in more detail, adding to the discourse.
  5. Utilize a Twitter space to continue a conversation that started during a podcast, live video broadcast, conference, or another event while providing additional context.
