Have you ever listened to a podcast and thought if you were listening to this conversation while it was happening LIVE what would you ask the panelist or the host? Well, let’s introduce a new âspaceâ on the internet that will take over conversations and give you a whole new social media experience! Twitter spaces-a voice-based social network feature that is slowly taking over the app and the internet, and which the MM team had the honor to test and host with none other than Nikkia Reveillac, the research director at Twitter.
Regarding conversation, we highlighted the need for community and the need to create a safe way to connect with others through these voice chats, where thoughtful conversations can take place and where we can talk about the things that really matter. . When women were asked about “Girl tribe” by MissMalini of what they would like to talk about openly on the internet, a ton of topics have been covered … Everything from motherhood to femininity, social causes and mental health, which just shows how, with the emergence of such features like Twitter spaces we can choose our story and choose to be kinder on social media.
When Malini Agarwal asked Nikkia what she wanted people to be able to talk about openly on the platform and how meaningful conversations can arise, here’s what she said;
When women are together there are topics that sometimes don’t come up – motherhood, fertility, inadequacy, social causes and justice, but what is said in private must also be said in public. We need
more men to become our allies and start the conversationâ¦. Which one is
Spaces democratizes and brings everyone together. There is a sense of calm but in control here, and this is the future of
Twitter spaces allows you to listen and participate in the conversation, all in a safe and user-friendly space. You can listen to things, hear another person’s point of view or an expert’s point of view without getting hateful or hurtful comments from the other side. This is how it works:
At Twitter space, the host can choose who speaks. The host can allow everyone, the people you follow, or only the invited people to be speakers. Since The spaces are public, anyone can really join the Space as a listener, including people who don’t follow you. And the great part about it is that it filters and limits the people who respond by having them listen to the conversation first before âattackingâ someone verbally.
Along with Malini and Nikkia there were a few ladies from the MM team and members of the Tribe Girl who gave her point of view and perspective on what and how women need a space to be able to speak freely on the Internet:
Alisha fernandes, director of functionalities;
Trolls and hate comments is also that the general internet does not facilitate learning through dialogue or conversation because the tendency is to always hate or shame the person for not knowing or asking “stupid questions” “. But in the girl tribe, feeling safe among those they are in company with, women ask so many questions that they inform and even educate others who may not have asked the question as well. Whether it’s about sex for pleasure or sexual health or even the disturbing and just hidden aspects of motherhood and child rearing.
Karishma govil, trend editor;
Women must be able to speak out without feeling judged. It can be anywhere, online or offline. This is why a platform like Twitter spaces and Tribe Girl By MissMalini are so necessary. It’s so liberating to be on a platform where I can speak up and know that I won’t be bombarded with hateful comments or inappropriate messages. And every online platform should deliver such a safe experience.
Natasha Patel, deputy director of functionalities;
Having a non-judgmental space, where you can be yourself and where knowledge and insight trumps all is so necessary. At Twitter spaces you don’t need to visually see the other person. You listen to them, you exchange experiences, information and learn from each other … Because beauty is not judged by what you see and how well you can cover acne spots, beauty is in everyone and knowledge is beautiful.
