Twitter is Developing Chat Rooms for Group Audio Calls

Twitter is a social media platform that was once seen as Facebook’s arch rival and the only platform that could challenge the rapidly rising Facebook’s inevitable domination of the industry. With all of that having been said and out of the way, it is important to note that Twitter fell by the wayside several years ago with Facebook managing to far surpass Twitter both in numbers of users as well as revenue streams which has resulted in Twitter being forced to play catch up lest it get relegated to the ranks of promising but poorly managed tech companies that failed to live up to their full potential.

While Twitter may be down, it is by no means out and the social media company has been putting a lot of effort into recapturing some of the momentum that it once had in order to remain competitive in the market. A new feature that Twitter is working on could be a key component to turning the tide. This new feature is called Audio Space, and it is basically meant to comprise of chat rooms that are essentially meant to allow you to hold group audio calls with people that you might follow and who follow you back.

This is in many ways a response to other platforms offering group video call features. Twitter lacks the infrastructure and resources required to be truly competitive in this area since group video calls are a tough nut to crack, but with Audio Space the company can remain competitive whilst also catering to the specific needs of its user base. This is an important move from Twitter, as while the social media platform has managed to survive so far things are slowly becoming untenable and it needs a Hail Mary to save its future lest it gets absorbed by larger corporations.
