Ayadee Foundation Founder Peter Johnson was interviewed by Al Jazeera Arabic about Twitter’s new “Spaces”. The Ayadee Foundation has transparency as a core value, so changes to systems like Twitter to create private spaces that require paid access, present a potential barrier to the open community that Twitter has been. Watch the interview here.
What is Twitter’s Spaces?
Twitter has expanded its paid product offerings to include “Spaces,” a new service that lets users create private groups with different levels of membership—from the free and open to the private and paid. So far, Spaces is only available to a handful of users, and can only be accessed via an invitation. But the service is already causing controversy. Some believe the new service will allow users to engage in more meaningful conversations, while others worry that it will create a more fragmented Twitter community.
