What is Twitter Spaces?
Twitter Spaces is the latest medium where users can have live audio conversations on Twitter. Launched on May 4, the platform is open to the public, and people can easily join or make a Space of their own. A user needs to have at least 600 followers to host a Space.
Space can have up to 11 speakers at the same time, including the host. There will be no limit on the number of listeners, so anyone can join as long as the Space is ongoing.
Twitter Spaces is available for both Android and iOS versions of the Twitter app.
Since it was released, several K-pop artists took advantage of the platform to better communicate and get closer to the fans.

On July 8, Twitter unveiled the Top 5 Twitter Spaces with the most listeners as of June 30. As mentioned above, GOT7 Bambam, NCT, and TWICE occupied three spots on the list.
Sitting at No. 1 is GOT7 Bambam (@BamBam1A). The "riBBon" singer achieved the record for the most-listened-to Space since launch.
Bambam's first Twitter Space took place on June 9. It was noted for its interactive Q&A with fans, who were able to ask questions to the GOT7 rapper themselves.
In third place is NCT (@NCTsmtown), who was the first K-pop artist to host a Twitter Space even before its official launch on May 4.
The boy group's Space, which occurred on March 11, garnered the highest number of listeners worldwide at that time, despite the platform still being in beta in that month.
Moreover, NCT's Twitter Space was also the most-liked Tweet for live Spaces in March.
TWICE, the only female user on the list grabbed the No. 5 spot. They are the first K-pop girl group to host a Twitter Space.

The users who took second and fourth place are Ranboo (@Ranboosaysstuff) in the gaming category and Nic Carter (@nic_carter) in the bitcoin category.
