Anyone with a link to a Twitter Space will now be able to listen to the live broadcast, even if they don’t have a Twitter account.
According to the announcement, a link to a Space will now give anyone access to the broadcast as it goes live.
have friends not on Twitter? that's weird but now you can share direct links to your Spaces and they can listen in via web without being logged in

This means that event hosts can aspire to a broader audience than the one they’ve been targeting and onboard them to the broadcast with just a link – inside and outside its app.
However, to participate in the chat, as guests on the show, or react with emojis or comments, members of the audience need to use their Twitter account.
The announcement is only the latest in a long succession of improvements Twitter is dedicating to the audio feature as it picks up relevance. Recently, Twitter started rolling out a dedicated Spaces tab on its home page, co-hosting options, and also allows hosts to download audio recordings from their Spaces broadcasts.
The latter gives hosts a way to repurpose their sessions and make them available beyond the live event.
