Twitter Spaces adds co-host option to help moderate and manage rooms


Twitter is updating Spaces to allow hosts to designate up to two co-hosts for its social audio rooms, making it easier for hosts of the audio space to help manage and moderate conversations.

Once invited, co-hosts have almost all the same moderation and managing privileges as the main host: they can speak, invite other members of the room to speak, pin tweets, boot people from the room, and more.

There are a few limitations, though: only the main host can invite or remove other users as co-hosts — one co-host can’t invite a second one, for example. Co-hosts also can’t end the room; only the original host can.

The co-host feature also expands the number of participants that can talk at once in a Space: now you can have one host, two co-hosts, and ten speakers all active in a room at once, up from the previous ten-speaker limit.

The new addition is rolling out now and should be a useful part in helping hosts keep Spaces under control, especially for larger conversations. The fast-paced rollout also shows how important Twitter views Spaces to be: the company also recently dedicated the top area of users’ timelines in the app (where Fleets used to live) to the social audio feature.
