Twitter has Announced that ticketed payment spaces will reach Android users in the US in the coming days. Hosts on Spaces, Twitter’s live audio room feature, will now be able to sell access to Ticketed Spaces. The Android launch follows the initial release of Ticketed Spaces for iOS users in late August.
The ticketed space apps first opened in June for iOS and Android users who are 18 years or older, have hosted three spaces in the last 30 days, and have at least 1,000 followers. Twitter now encourages Android users to request ticket slots and provide feedback on the new feature.
Ticket spaces are coming to Android! The option to buy tickets will be extended to everyone in the US for the next few days.

The social media giant notes that the feature is a way to support creators for their time and effort to host and moderate public conversations. Creators can use Ticketed Spaces to organize workshops, conversations or meet and greet with users. Twitter previously declared which will take a 3 percent cut of the earnings from the creators of Ticketed Spaces.
If a space is a ticketed space, users will see an option to purchase a ticket for the amount of money the host has set. Users can also receive an invitation to purchase a ticket from a participant in the ticketed space through a DM with a link.
Ticketed Spaces helps Twitter to differentiate itself from its competitors, Clubhouse and Instagram, as neither platform has implemented a pre-sale ticket feature.
