Twitter has developed a co-hosting feature that will grant up to two users access to the same tools currently available to hosts.
Back in March, Twitter started developing a new co-hosting option for Spaces, which would provide another means to manage your live discussions.
Now, Twitter is officially launching the new co-hosting features on Spaces, announced via Tweet from the company’s account.
making it easier to manage your Space…introducing co-hosting!

Following the rollout, Twitter Spaces hosts are now able to add co-hosts from the ‘Guests’ tab at the bottom of the Spaces screen.
From there, a new ‘Invite co-hosts’ option has become available. When tapped on, the icon will enable you to scroll through the Space’s attendees and select one to partner to co-host with.
The new feature allows for a maximum of two co-hosts on each Space. Each of the two hosts will have access to the features enjoyed so far by Spaces hosts, such as inviting speakers, managing requests within the Space, pinning Tweets, and even removing guests.
Having an extra pair of hands to help manage the administrative tasks during a live chat, especially one that involves a big number of attendees, will be particularly beneficial as one doesn’t need to interrupt the speaking presenter co-hosting the event.
Twitter Spaces developed the new feature in two months, in response to user requests. However, as competition in the live voice-chat landscape continues, it is worth noting that the co-hosting option was already available on Clubhouse.
Twitter has also made more room for Spaces earlier last week, when it removed Fleets from the top bar of the feed page, making way for the “Spaces bar” instead, as Twitter looks to maximize the feature’s potential.
Twitter has not yet announced an official roll-out plan for the new feature.
