Twitter Spaces is now available to everyone on Android and iOS, the company announced on Thursday. Earlier, only those with more than 600 followers could host a Space on the platform.
Twitter started testing its Clubhouse-like feature in December 2020 and has gradually rolled it out to a broader userbase. Earlier this year, Twitter Spaces also rolled out to the web version but people still can’t host Spaces through their PC.
In June, Twitter also rolled out Ticketed Spaces can charge a one-time ticket for their Spaces — ranging from $1 to $999. Creators will see up to 97% of their ticketed spaces and super follows revenues after an in-app purchase fee. However, this percentage can decrease depending on the charges levied by the payment processor, including any transfer fee or currency conversion charges. E-wallets might levy additional charges too.
Once a creator has collected more than $50,000 in lifetime revenues from Twitter creator monetisation products, including ticketed spaces and super follows, their share will reduce to 80% of the total revenue after Twitter takes its cut. At the time of release, Ticketed Spaces were limited to users with 1,000 followers or more, who are more than 18 years old and have hosted at least three Spaces in the last 30 days.
