Twitter recently revealed the details for its Ticketed Spaces, the social media platform’s latest monetization feature. This new feature is set to launch soon in the U.S, and will allow users to create ticketed events with the help of a third party. During the launch period, users can also purchase tickets directly from Twitter.
In this article, we’ll explore more information about this new feature and find out when ticketed spaces will be available.
Background on Ticketed Spaces
Twitter’s Ticketed Spaces feature is a new product that allows users to host virtual events like concerts and sports games for which users can buy tickets. The feature was first announced in early 2021 and is expected to roll out soon, beginning with a U.S. launch.
Ticketed Spaces on Twitter harness the power of the platform’s global audience to create an experience that is interactive, engaging and safe from anywhere in the world. It also allows hosts, venues, creators and organizations to monetize their events using ticket sales. For example, users can host concerts, Q&As and cooking classes with up to 10,000 guests or attendees; athletic competitions like pick-up basketball or soccer games with up to 1,000 participants; conferences or workshops with up to 500 presenters; as well as game nights for up to 50 people.
The cost of tickets for Ticketed Spaces will vary by host but is always free for viewers; this pricing structure is an incentive for others—organizations, hosts and influencers—to use the feature more often so they have access to large audiences while still making money from their events.
Finally, Ticketed Spaces provides additional safety features such as custom moderation and security settings (which enable hosts to moderate their spaces more effectively) and a secure payment process that requires no additional downloads or third-party applications (meaning all purchases are conducted directly on Twitter).
Twitter reveals details for Ticketed Spaces as U.S. launch nears
Twitter is preparing for the U.S. launch of its Ticketed Spaces for creators, allowing them to create and host premium events. With Ticketed Spaces, creators can easily monetize their events, enabling them to deliver exclusive experiences to their audiences.
Here, we’ll discuss the details of the U.S. launch of this feature and when it will be available.
What Ticketed Spaces will offer
Twitter recently announced a new suite of services called Ticketed Spaces, which aim to make it easier for people to come together in virtual, ticketed events. These events will allow users to monetize their content, help support their businesses, or create engaging experiences with friends and family.
Ticketed Spaces will allow users to directly charge an admission fee or donation to access the event, allowing them to earn rewards through purchases made within their ticketed spaces. In addition, people can receive promotional offers or exclusive content and community members can request payment via card or off-platform payment services depending on availability in the region. As with other tools Twitter creates, creators can keep 100% of the proceeds they generate through Ticketed Spaces.
In addition, administrators of ticketed events will have access to useful moderation tools and analytics related to sales and attendance as part of the Ticketed Space product. For example, event administrators can choose whether their shows are open (anyone can join) or closed (ticket holders only). They’ll also be able to decide whether their events display publicly within Twitter timelines, allowing them greater control over who attends each show.
Twitter plans on releasing ticketed spaces in the U.S., Japan and India first with plans for global expansion later this year. More details about availability for creator monetization is expected closer to launch date this spring.
How to create a Ticketed Space
Twitter recently launched Ticketed Spaces to help organizations and content creators monetize their work. It is meant to open up opportunities for organizations, public figures, and other creators to offer virtual experiences to their followers, to create a more secure environment than the existing open platform. However, attendees need to pay to participate in the event and not just any ticket purchase allows entry – attendees must request access from an organizer before being granted admission.
For users to create a Ticketed Space on Twitter, they have three options: choosing an event from their calendar, creating an event from scratch or duplicating an existing event.
For those choosing an event from their calendar, users will click on ‘Create Ticket’ after clicking on the event. This will take them through setting up their pricing structures, ticket levels and payment structure along with other details such as when tickets will be available or closing time for registration.
For those opting to create a new event from scratch, they need to fill out details such as name of the event, date/time information (when tickets will become available), type of ticket (free or paid), ticketing system (Paypal or Apple Pay) and customized pricing packages with options like ‘early bird’ rate etc.. As for duplicating an existing event published earlier – users can choose this option if they want no changes in the original settings of an already existing ticketed space.
Selecting this option brings forward already set details which the user can later edit if desired afterwards. Once all settings are set up along with required customizations have been entered – just click publish button and your Ticketed Space is set!
Cost of creating a Ticketed Space
Twitter’s Ticketed Spaces offer tools to bring people together for online events in a secure and personalized environment. Ticketed Spaces are rolling out on Twitter beginning today, starting with the U.S., in three phases between now and May of this year.
Users can start reserving a Ticketed Space at launch by selecting the icon from the compose Tweet box. Once an event is reserved, users can access their space by visiting https://twitter.com/spaces.
Creating a new Ticketed Space will incur a cost as part of its goal to become an income stream for content creators on Twitter’s platform. The creator determines the cost of hosting each ticket and must be paid using either Stripe or PayPal when booking for an event or purchasing tickets to a space. Twitter has no plans to retain any additional fees from purchasers during this early phase of the launch process.
Benefits of Ticketed Spaces
Twitter has just announced details of their new Ticketed Spaces feature, which is set to launch soon in the U.S. Ticketed Spaces are an exciting new way for creators to monetize their content and engage more deeply with their followers to build their businesses.
Let’s take a look at some of the benefits that come with using Ticketed Spaces on Twitter.
Increased engagement opportunities
One of the key benefits of Ticketed Spaces is that it provides businesses with increased opportunities for engagement with their customers. With Ticketed Spaces, customers can prepare to attend tickets events such as music concerts, live streams, workshops, and more without having to worry about lines or overcrowding.
Additionally, businesses could use the Ticketed Spaces feature to monetize their content by charging for admission. Businesses can track attendance by switching to a ticketing system to measure their success rate and better gauge customer engagement.
Overall, this new feature from Twitter is a useful way for companies to increase customer engagement and monetize their content simultaneously.
Improved monetization potential
The launch of Ticketed Spaces will offer new ways for creators to earn money on Twitter, providing them an improved mechanism to monetize their content. Creators and most any public account will be able to host paid-entry live audio conversations. In addition, when creators set up a Ticketed Space, they can set the ticket price and when access expires.
Once a Space has started, participants can join directly from a tweet or producer’s profile. After buying access, they’ll receive a digital ticket that allows entry into the conversation. The conversation is powered by Twitter’s audio technology and features like direct messages, bringing people closer together through discussions without interface disruptions or additional downloads. All participants will also have access to moderator tools so conversations remain safe and respectful for everyone involved
By using Ticketed Spaces for live audio conversations, creators can earn money for their work by setting the ticket prices themselves. Any revenue generated from Tickets sales is split equally between the creator and Twitter after processing fees are deducted from Twitter’s end—minus applicable taxes—enabling reliable monetization of unique fan experiences without large upfront costs typically associated with live events venues and equipment rentals.
Enhanced user experience
Ticketed Spaces provide an enhanced user experience for hosts and audiences by allowing hosts to charge for access to their Spaces and helping make running interactive events easier. Hosts also benefit from robust tools to help promote their Spaces, manage event logistics, and track performance.
For audiences, Ticketed Spaces offer a personal way to enjoy events with friends or meet new people in a safe place. Tickets motivate guests to interact with the host—by contributing ideas in open Q&A sessions or submitting real-time feedback on polls—adding an extra layer of engagement encourages deeper conversations while making the experience more rewarding for everyone involved.
Additionally, when users join a Ticketed Space, they can view it directly on Twitter and other platforms supporting the embedded version of Twitter’s technology (such as websites). This wider access allows for greater reach for attendees exploring content inside and outside the event space. Ultimately, it gives hosts more control over creating engaging experiences from start to finish.
Twitter recently revealed details of its plans for Ticketed Spaces, a new feature introduced to the platform as part of its growing U.S. launch effort. Ticketed Spaces will enable Twitter users to host events on the platform, with ticket sales and virtual event registration integrated into Tweeting experience. As the launch nears, here is a summary of key points that have emerged from Twitter’s recent announcement:
-The feature will enable any user to create a ticketed space for an event and invite others to join.
-Payments can be processed by credit card or PayPal.
-Tickets prices start at $4.99 each and go up to $19.99 depending on the audience size for the event in question.
-Events hosted in Ticketed Space will be integrated into Twitter streams, with relevant hashtags used for easy searching and discovery by potential participants.
-Fans who cannot attend an event can purchase a digital ticket and access content remotely—a useful feature if there are geographical constraints due to lockdown measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
-Twitter has also revealed plans to provide third party vendors with access to an Events API which would make connecting directly with social media influencers easier, helping them get more eyeballs on their respective events or projects on Twitter itself.
