Twitter’s extraordinary live audio room feature, Twitter Spaces, has hit the masses in December 2020 and has been making a mark ever since. The reason behind its popularity is apparently, its ability to hold audio conversations and discussions that’s more in demand.

Twitter Spaces are a kind of clubhouse where users sharing similar interests meet, participate, listen, and discuss various subjects. Using this feature is quite simple.

There are certain drawbacks you get to encounter using this feature on the Twitter app. For example, you seem to get notified every time the people you follow are starting spaces, by default. Nevertheless, there’s a way you can use to evade the notification captioned “Person is speaking” when you are not ready to join in. In that case, you can avoid getting such updates by just disabling the notifications.
