How to join Twitter Spaces
Spaces, Twitter’s live audio discussion service, is now available on desktop and mobile web browsers, but users can’t yet host rooms on the web. The audio rooms, on the other hand, can be linked together. Tap on their profile image in ‘Fleets,’ then scroll to the far right and pick Spaces. Because Spaces are public, anyone can join as a Listener, including people who don’t follow you.

How to add Speakers to your Twitter Space talk, Who can see your Twitter Space chat
According to Twitter, all Spaces, like Tweets, are ‘public,’ meaning that anybody can access them. They will appear at the top of your Home timeline, where Fleets are displayed, and each space will have a link that may be shared publicly. This also means that anyone on Twitter can become a Listener in any place. However, when it comes to speakers, Twitter’s Space is always limited to only those that the user “asks to talk.” This, however, can be altered.
Now you can check Fleets while you scroll Tweets on the timeline.
When there’s a blue circle around someone’s avatar, tap it to see their Fleets. Rolling out on iOS and soon on Android.

According to Twitter, these rights are only saved for this specific space, so any place you establish in the future will use the default option. A scheduled space card in a Tweet can also be used to sign up for “reminders”
When the presenter launches the Spaces, listeners instantly get a push and in-app alerts. As a listener, you may mute any Speaker, but the host can delete, report, and block others in the area. Twitter Space’s listening UI adapts to any screen size and allows access to transcriptions. Only the Host of Space can put a halt to the audio room conversations.
