Twitter is testing two new ways for its users to start Twitter Spaces sessions, both on iOS.

Users in the test group can tap the Spaces icon in the bottom left of the tweet composer.


Or they can do so from the retweet menu, at which point the usual setup for Twitter Spaces will be bypassed and they will immediately go live, with the tweet that was retweeted pinned to the top of the Space.

The social network is also testing a new way for hosts and speakers to share tweets in a Space via the retweet menu.
