Twitter has announced to roll out paid ‘Ticketed Spaces’ for iOS users where some hosts on its live audio feature can now sell access to Ticketed Spaces.
The company in May said it was working on a ‘Ticketed Spaces’ feature for hosts to be rewarded for the experiences they create by getting monetary support while providing listeners with exclusive access to the conversations they care about most.
“We want to help people creating cool Spaces make $$$. today, some Hosts will be able to create Ticketed Spaces!,” the micro-blogging platform said in a tweet late on Thursday.
“We’re experimenting on iOS only for now but we hope to get it to everyone soon. know it’s taking us a little time, but we want to get this right for you,” the company added.
Hosts can set ticket prices and how many are available to sell. Hosts earn most of the revenue from ticket sales, and Twitter will also keep a small amount.
Twitter had previously said that it would take a 3 percent cut of creators’ earnings from Ticketed Spaces.
After first testing Spaces with a small group of people on iOS, Twitter in March expanded the test to Android users in India to give them a chance to join, listen to, and speak in live, host-moderated audio conversations.
‘Ticketed Spaces’ was opened in June for users who are over 18, hosted three Spaces in the last 30 days, and have at least 1,000 followers.
Taking on invite-only audio chat app Clubhouse, Twitter in May announced to make its live audio conversation app Spaces available to users.
