Four Ways To Best Utilize Twitter Spaces

Drive engagement and have fun.

If you haven’t heard by now, Twitter Spaces is Twitter’s new audio drop-in chat feature. The trailblazing social media feature is still in beta testing mode and hasn’t fully rolled out to the masses yet. So for Twitter users still exploring, here are a few pointers to drive engagement, be effective, and have fun as a host.

1) Topical Conversation 
This is the most common type of Space. Conversation with reasonable context is the best way to communicate with others. Hosting a Space with good, quality convo will keep listeners engaged and speakers active. Interviews are cool, but group conversation is way better!

2)  Interviews
I’m a super journalism fan, and whenever I can get a good interview with someone for content purposes, I’ll jump right at it. Twitter Spaces is a great place for journalists to interview their subjects in an easily accessible fashion. It also gives the public to hear words straight from the horse’s mouth, so there’s no confusion or misquotes.

3) Game Night
The idea of an audio-only game night with “strangers” seems awkward, but you’ll be surprised at how many random participants who’re looking for interaction you’ll get while hosting a virtual game night via Twitter Spaces. Brands like FamFoolery provide amazing trivia and engage with you without leaving the Twitter app

4)  Music Party
Music is a universal language. Feature your favorite playlist to host your own dance party and allow your listeners to become verbally non-committed and just vibe out. Be your Space’s DJ, take requests via DM, and create a place for people to virtually escape.

A breakdown of the words that mean the most.

Kanye’s latest album came, surprisingly, earlier  than the anticipated “Yandhi” album. With fans still itching to get an earful of “Yandhi”, the artist made an entire energy switch by dedicating a whole project to his recent spiritual endeavors. We all know ‘Ye by now, so the spontaneity is, honestly, expected. This is a full-fledged gospel project dedicated to his love for the Holy Spirit and the artist’s personal journey, which caught some off guard.

The album is short, but meaningful with quite a few key quotes that help bridge the communication gap between he and his audience. He said in an interview that The Lord told him to “use himself”, and quite frankly, what better way for ‘Ye to use his own words.

Here are a few quotes from tracks on the album that I found powerfully communicative.

Abandon Ship From Anna Faris’ New Comedy!

1 out of 5 stars (one of the worst films I have ever seen)


I’ve been reviewing movies since 2005, and I’ve seen a lot of clunkers. From offensive tripe like Daddy’s Home to the incompetence that is Furry Vengeance, I’ve had my fair share of displeasure at the multiplex. However, no theatrically-released film has ever been so awful to the point that I walked out of it. Never has a film so fundamentally misunderstood its premise, characters, and message so badly that I actively had to leave. That is, until I saw the mess that is the unnecessary 2018 remake of Overboard. While the original had depth and thought-provoking commentary while still being a laugh riot, this shipwreck is content to trot out easy jokes without any of the pathos of its predecessor and completely undermines its romantic ending.
