Many iOS and Android users can see who their friends are attending Space.
Twitter is trying out a new way to make it easier for you to find Spaces you are interested in. According to the Spaces Twitter account, some users on iOS or Android will now see if someone they follow is listening in on a Space right at the top of their timelines.
Twitter already surfaces Spaces in the top bar, where you may have seen Fleets before Twitter closed them down. However, previously it only displayed Spaces from people who you followed hosting social audio rooms. You might now be able to see when someone you follow is tuning in to one.
we’re experimenting with ways to help you discover more Spaces. for some of you on iOS and android, if someone you follow is listening to a Space, you’ll see it at the top of your tl.— Spaces (@TwitterSpaces) August 24, 2021
you can control who can see your listening activity in your settings.

You can disable the ability to allow followers to see what Spaces you are attending. To do this, navigate to the “Settings & Privacy” menu and select “Privacy & safety.” You can still see who is in your Space if you are there.
Last week, Twitter added another way to make Spaces more discoverable by making it easier for other apps to point to Spaces. The company is also continuing to iterate on the experience of being in a space, adding the ability for Spaces hosts to designate up to two co-hosts earlier this month.
