Earlier this month Twitter announced that a Twitter Podcast tab is coming soon to the social media platform.
Twitter rocked the world of social media last year when they announced the launch of their live audio feature Twitter Spaces.
At the time there was alot of discussion as to whether this feature would take over ClubHouse and subsequently the affect this may have on podcast listenership.
The Twitter Podcasts feature however seems to be very different and will have a dedicated space on Twitter to house podcasts.
A spokesperson said, “We’re always exploring new ways to help people engage in the conversation on Twitter, but have no further details to share at this time.”
It’s very interesting that Twitter is now expanding and investing more into the audio sphere with the integration of ClubHouse like Twitter Spaces as well as their Voices feature.
The Twitter Podcasts much like Spotify’s audio newsfeed, is created to help improve podcast discoverability on social media platforms.
Do you use Twitter to promote your podcast? If so (or even if you don’t) do you like the sound of this feature?
