Twitter began testing the new feature,”Spaces” which are voice chat rooms that were first announced last month, and in a series of tweets announcing the feature test, Twitter said: A very small group of users will be granted The ability to create “Spaces”, but theoretically anyone can join those “Spaces”, however, who will be allowed access to a particular “Space” depends on the user who created them.

Twitter explained at the time how the first people to be granted access to “Spaces” would be women and people from other marginalized communities, and the groups most likely to experience abuse and harassment when trying to engage in regular conversations and discussions. The list is based on comments on the platform.

Supervision appears to be a major focus of the “Spaces” feature. Creators can control who can or cannot speak, and there are reporting and blocking features included in the first version. Other features being tested include emoji-based reactions, the ability to share tweets, and a very early version of live audio transcription.
