Twitter revealed this week that it has begun testing a new clipping tool for Spaces. On iOS, select hosts can now cut 30 seconds of audio of recording Spaces and share it with others via Twitter.
All iOS users may now watch and listen to the videos on their timelines, and Android and online users will soon have access. In the future, the business intends to make the clipping feature available to all users, not only hosts.

Twitter representative said, “There is really no limit on the number of audio files; and they will exist on the network for 30 days”.
“At the moment, iOS users can see and hear to Spaces snippets on their Timeline; and Android and Twitter.com users will soon have access as well.” We’ll keep an eye on the response and want to make Spaces clips available to all on Twitter in the coming years”.
Last September, Clubhouse, the social voice application that motivated the creation of Twitter Spaces, launched its clipping feature. Live listeners in public spaces can cut the most current 30 seconds of audio and send it anyplace with this function. Other social media channels can be used to share these.
In order to round out the Spaces offering, Twitter has been providing new capabilities over the last few months. Spaces Recording, a feature that would allow hosts to publish tweets with recorded conversations of previous Spaces; has been in development by the firm.
Twitter allowed presenters who posted recorded Spaces the chance to track how many people joined live and how many people repeated the clip afterward earlier this year. As individuals around the globe were isolated to their homes due to the pandemic, live audio became increasingly popular.
However, since limitations in many countries have been relaxed and in-person meetings have resumed; firms that provide live audio room capabilities, like as Twitter and Clubhouse, are offering additional features to maintain customers.
