Trying ‘Podcast’ tab in app
According to a post shared by Jane Manchun Wong, known for her posts on mobile apps, Twitter is testing the use of a ‘podcast’ tab in its app. Let’s say that there is not much detail about this feature in the news so far. However, it would not be wrong to state that the addition of such a feature to Twitter after the Spaces voice chat feature, which was met with great interest, would make users happy.

In the news so far, it has been stated that this new tab can be used as an extension of Spaces, which also enables recordings that can be described as ‘podcasts’. Considering that the interest and investments in Spaces are quite high, it is possible to say that this claim is strong.
It can offer new opportunities to content creators with more advertising and revenue spaces
In addition, the podcast tab; It was also claimed that it could be used to increase revenues through advertising and subscriptions thanks to exclusive content, or that it may be being tested to enable content producers to use Twitter to create their own podcasts.
As a result, it is currently unclear what the tested feature will be used for; however, the fact that the popularity of podcasts has increased significantly in recent years may indicate that this type of tab can make Twitter users happy.
