Twitter has updated Spaces to allow hosts add up to two co-hosts to help in moderation and management of the discussions.
Co-hosts will be assigned almost the same privileges as the main host. These include: speaking, inviting other members to speak, pin tweets, eject unruly listeners/speakers and more.
As opposed to the main hosts, the co-hosts will have some limitations. For instance, only the main host can designate or remove a user from being a co-host. In addition to that, only the main host can call off a discussion or end a room.
The company announced the new development through its Spaces account.

Now that the number of hosts has increased, the number of speakers will also go up from the original limit of 10. This is because co-hosts are automatically assigned speaker roles.
Twitter is currently rolling out the update which will come in handy for discussions that particularly attract a huge audience. Twitter Spaces is one of the company’s most successful features, and we can definitely expect the company to keep developing it.
