Twitter has announcement that Paid Paid Spaces will arrive to Android users in the United States over the next few days. Hosts on Spaces, Twitter’s live audio room feature, will now be able to sell access to paid spaces. Android’s launch comes after the initial rollout of Ticketed Spaces for iOS users in late August.
The apps for paid spaces were first opened in June for iOS and Android users over the age of 18, who have hosted three spaces in the past 30 days and have at least 1,000 subscribers. Twitter is now encouraging Android users to request paid spaces and provide feedback on the new feature.
Paid spaces are coming to Android! The option to purchase tickets will be rolled out to everyone in the United States over the next few days.

The social media giant notes that the feature is a way to support creators for their time and effort in hosting and moderating public conversations. Creators can use paid spaces to organize workshops, conversations, or meet up with users. Twitter previously indicated that it will take a 3% reduction in creators’ income from paid spaces.
If a space is a ticketed space, users will see an option to purchase a ticket for the amount the host has set. Users can also receive an invitation to purchase a ticket from a participant in the Ticketed Space via a DM with a link.
Ticketed Spaces helps Twitter differentiate itself from its competition, Clubhouse and Instagram, as neither platform has deployed an advance ticketing functionality.
