Twitter wants to keep its foot on the accelerator, with the expansion of two new projects that offer more opportunities for brands and creators in the app.
First, Twitter is now inviting more businesses to apply for its Professional Profiles test, which enables brands to show more business information in a dedicated, extra profile space in the app.
As you can see in this example, Twitter’s professional profiles add several new display elements to your Twitter presence, including a business playlist (which people can tap to open in Google Maps), working hours, and contact information, all in a new module below your main profile view.
Twitter has launched its initial test of professional profiles back in april, and now more businesses are getting such notifications in their inbox.
This may indicate that the option is getting closer to a full rollout, and also with Twitter experiment with new business iconsIf they define their sector, it seems that the next step for the option is imminent.
In addition, Twitter is also expanding access to Ticketed Spaces, which it first opened to public applications back in june.

It is therefore not yet available to everyone, but from today more people will be able to house their own paid space, from which they can earn direct income for their efforts.
I mean, they’ll get a little. Twitter pays only 3% of the cost for Ticketed Spaces (up to $ 50,000 in total earnings), but app store fees must also be taken into account, which will reduce the creator’s total share. For example, on iOS, if you set a ticket price for your space of $ 5, $ 2.80 of each ticket sold will go to you, while 70c will go to Twitter, and $ 1.50 to Apple / Google.
So it’s a different element to keep in mind – but it does offer another revenue opportunity, and it may encourage more people to use Spaces, which has apparently lost some of its initial momentum as the sky clears. from the sound social tendency.
At the same time, it is also currently a bit unclear what Twitter is going to do to further promote the discovery of Spaces.
The last few months have been Twitter developing a new, dedicated Spaces tab in the app, which provides users with an easy way to access broadcasts at any time. But last week, with the arrival of Communities, it added another tab in the slot of the bottom bar.
Is it then the spaces or communities that get the last nod? I do not know, and maybe Twitter does not know either, because three days after the launch of communities it is a preview of another new design for the Spaces tab.
Maybe it’s a result of an increased speed of development, or is it all part of a broader plan that Twitter will reveal over time.
Either way, Spaces needs good content to get people back, especially if they are having trouble finding it. As such, it is important that Twitter decides to expand spaces with tickets, which also offers more revenue potential for more creators in the app.
Oh, and there are also these:
I have no idea what it is.
