In 2020, Twitter introduced a feature called Spaces, which can be thought of as online chat rooms that allow people to discuss topics and interact with each other. In the world of NFTs (non-fungible tokens), Spaces go beyond having conversations: they’re often the best places for getting the latest alpha (NFT lingo for knowledge) on projects and the source for the latest news in Web3.
However not every Twitter Space is created the same, it takes some time to find ones that align with your interests.
