Twitter adds support for Twitter Spaces to its rebuilt API

Twitter

Twitter is rolling out changes to its newly rebuilt API. That will allow third-party developers to build tools and other solutions specifically for its audio chatroom product, Twitter Spaces.

This may later be followed by an API update that will make it possible for developers to build out more tools for Spaces hosts. The company first introduced its fully rebuilt API last year. With the goal of modernizing its developer platform while also making it easier to add support for Twitter’s newer features at a faster pace.

With the current API update, Twitter hopes developers will build new products that enable users both on and off Twitter. This could potentially broaden the reach of Spaces and introduce its audio chats to more people.

Developers said they also want to build tools that would allow Spaces hosts. To better understand how well their audio chats are performing. But most of these options aren’t yet available with today’s API update. Twitter only said it’s exploring other functionality like tools that would allow developers to integrate reminders into their products.
