Twitter is experimenting with a way to make it easier to find rooms that you might be interested in. Some iOS or Android users will now see if someone they follow listens to a space at the very top of their timelines, according to Space’s Twitter account.
Twitter has already appeared spaces in the top line (where you may have also seen Fleets before Twitter closed them), but previously it only showed spaces from people you follow who were hosting the social sound spaces. Now, however, you can also see when someone you follow is tuning in to one.
We are experimenting with ways to help you discover more spaces. for some of you on iOS and android, if someone you follow listens to a space, you see it at the top of tl.
you can control who can see your listening activity in the settings.

If you do not want your followers to know which rooms you are going to, you can turn it off by navigating to the “Settings & Privacy” menu, then “Privacy & Security” and then turning off the option to “allow followers to see which spaces you listen to. ”Turning this off will not hide your presence inside the Spaces, however, if you walk in a space, the people in the room with you will still be able to see that you are there.
Just last week, Twitter added another way to make Spaces more visible by making it easier for other apps to point to Spaces. The company also continues to repeat the experience of being in a room, adding the ability for Spaces hosts to appoint up to two co-hosts earlier this month.
