Twitter Spaces bar on top a turn-off for some users, and here

Twitter Spaces bar on top a turn-off for some, official response

Twitter recently launched Spaces through which you can have live audio conversations with others on the platform.

Spaces are public, so anyone can join as a listener, including people who are not your followers as long as they have a link to the Space.

The conversations in the Spaces can be recorded by the host which can be replayed later. There can only be 2 co-hosts and 11 speakers but there is no restriction on the number of listeners.

Well, it would be an understatement to say users don’t like the new Spaces bar and want to get rid of it as soon as possible (1,2,3,4,5,6,7).

In order to make it ecstatically more pleasing, Twitter introduced a new Spaces purple bar on the top. Here, you can see info like who’s hosting, topics being discussed, who’s shared a tweet, and much more.

@TwitterSpaces I don’t know how you user test things but new spaces top bar is just pain and unusable. Can you instead of waiting minute for that flowing text make change on tap? It would save me 90% of time. Wen I see 3+ spaces like that I just surrender

Stop trying to make spaces a thing @twitter. I don’t care, I don’t want it and yet I can’t seem to remove it from the top of the app.Does anyone know how to get rid of these?

Many users find it forced and instead would have liked it to be a customizable feature where they could have the option to turn it on or off in the settings.

Issue acknowledged

As it turns out, Twitter support has shed some light on this issue and said that there isn’t a way to remove it, but are exploring ways to give users more control over Spaces in the future.
