Twitter recently expanded its platform offerings with the launch of the new 'Spaces' feature. Currently available in an early beta version, the new feature was designed to enable consumers to create audio-only meetings that guests can join, listen in on, or actively participate in. The audio-only meetings are displayed through a purple icon on the creators' Fleets bubble that shows when a discussion is in progress and who is participating.
Twitter commented on the drive behind the new Spaces feature, stating: "The human voice can bring a layer of connectivity to Twitter through emotion, nuance and empathy often lost in text. We see this with voice tweets and voice DMs. Sometimes 280 isn't enough, and voice gives people another way to join the conversation."
