Twitter Is Adding Podcasts To Its Platform As It Redesigns Spaces

As part of its revamped Spaces tab, micro-blogging site Twitter is now officially adding podcasts to its platform for audio creators. The company has announced it is integrating podcasts into its platform which would be visible for both iOS and Android users.

“Starting Thursday, August 25, we’re integrating podcasts into Twitter as a part of our newly redesigned Spaces Tab. We know that some discussions need more than 280 characters, and bringing people closer to the ideas, content, and creators they know and love is core to Twitter no matter where the conversations take place,” the micro-blogging site wrote in a blog post.

All about podcast integration into Twitter Spaces

Aiming to continue to invest in audio creators, Twitter is integrating podcasts into Spaces, where audio conversations happen on the micro-blogging platform.

The revamped Twitter Spaces brings personalised hubs that feature group audio content together by specific themes like News, Music, Sports, and more. Now Twitter listeners will be able to easily access a more personalised selection of live and recorded Spaces discussing the topics that are most relevant to them. 

The new hubs will also feature the most popular and engaging podcasts from around the world. As per Twitter’s internal research, 45 per cent of people who use Twitter in the US also listen to podcasts monthly, so the company would automatically suggest compelling podcasts to help people easily find and listen to the topics they want to hear more about. For example, if someone regularly interacts with Vox content on Twitter, they’ll probably see a Vox podcast in a Spaces hub.
