Twitter has announced the launch of a new three-month accelerator program to assist aspiring Spaces creators. The initiative, dubbed the Twitter Spaces Spark Program, will provide audio hosts with financial, technical, and marketing assistance, according to the company.
Those who are accepted into the program will receive a monthly stipend of $2,500, monthly ad credits, early access to upcoming Twitter products and features, and support from the company’s social media channels.

Currently, the accelerator is only open to creators over the age of 18 who live in the United States. Furthermore, only those with 5,000 or more active followers will be accepted. There is also an expectation that those participating in the program will broadcast at least two Spaces per week.
Following a limited iOS-only release in August, Twitter has now begun rolling out Ticketed Spaces to Android users in the United States. Creators can charge for access to their live audio events using this feature.
