Twitter had recently confirmed that it is going to add more details to the active Spaces banner at the top of the home screen. It will soon show who’s hosting the Space, who shares a tweet in the Space and relevant topics. This banner will also be available for Blue subscribers, and they do not have an option to remove it entirely.

For the unversed, iOS and desktop users who have subscribed to Twitter Blue will get “a fast-loading, ad-free reading experience” when they visit a news site available in the US including The Washington Post, L.A. Times, USA TODAY, The Atlantic, Reuters, The Daily Beast, Rolling Stone, BuzzFeed, Insider and The Hollywood Reporter. Subscribers will also be able to see “the most-shared articles in their network over the last 24 hours”.

A couple of months back, Twitter, via its official Spaces handle, announced that it has started testing a new feature that will essentially bring chat threads to Spaces. The micro-blogging platform said that it will automatically send a Space card as a tweet right after a host opens a room. Once that happens, all the listeners will be able to send tweets directly from that Space.
