Twitter reported today that a few hosts on Spaces, its live audio feature, can now offer access to Ticketed Spaces. Applications for Ticketed Spaces originally opened in June for clients who are more than 18, hosted three Spaces over the most recent 30 days and have at least 1,000 followers.
“We’re continuing to work closely with people who are already hosting Spaces for Ticketed Spaces,” a Twitter representative told TechCrunch. Twitter declined to say how many people it’s rolled out this capability to so far, or when users can expect a more universal rollout. For now, anyone on iOS can buy tickets to Spaces hosted by people who have access to the feature.
Twitter recently expressed that it will take a 3% cut of makers’ earnings from Ticketed Spaces. However, since the component is just right now accessible on iOS, that implies that Twitter will be liable to Apple’s 30% in-app purchase fee, so a maker will just see 67% of each ticket sale. In case a maker’s complete lifetime earnings on Twitter — including Ticketed Spaces and Super Follows — surpass $50,000, then, at that point Twitter will raise its 3% commission to 20%.
Tagged Spaces would separate Twitter beside its live audio competitors. Clubhouse and Instagram let audience members tip speakers or award badges in a live audio space, however the applications haven’t enabled advance ticket sales.
