The social network Twitter will launch Spaces, its audio service in April in which anyone can create their own public conversations and that will compete with the popular Clubhousea company spokesperson announced in an online interview.
The employee of Twitter and account manager @akkhosh, who identifies himself solely as “Alex” and whom the company has designated as its first Spaces host, said in an interview in the beta version of the service itself that it will be available in April.
The bluebird firm had been publicly announcing the next Spaces launch for weeks, and in February it already had 1,000 users who were testing it in its beta version (prior to launch). The goal of the social network is for the service to compete head-to-head with Clubhouse, which in recent months has gained great popularity, especially after interviews with figures such as Tesla CEO Elon Musk and the co-founder and CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg.
Clubhouse is a mix of a virtual conference and an interactive podcast in which users can create rooms to discuss -in principle on any subject- by means of audio and with up to 5,000 people in real time. The social network currently limits the number of users through two mechanisms: it is only available to Apple devices and also uses a “principle of invitation“That is, only those who are invited by an existing user can have a voice. Both factors mean that it is primarily used by celebrities, politicians, and prominent media figures.
