Twitter Spaces vs Clubhouse

If you’re a Zoomer (GenZ) or Millennial, you know how social media can be an overwhelming space… no pun intended haha! 🤓 Long gone are the wholesome days where most creators had a genuine passion for the contenting they were creating.

As a 22 year old, I grew up with social media being important… to an extent, and now it’s the center of our lives. 🌎 Platforms are oversaturated with people chasing clout, competing for followers, and desperately trying to gain access to the latest apps.

💡 I joined Clubhouse on Dec. 13th of 2020, and Twitter Spaces nearly 2 weeks ago! Despite social media being notoriously known for posting visible media content, I’m loving the concept behind audio-only apps. A platform without the need for validation and likes, but insightful conversations instead.

CLUBHOUSE 🏠

  • Celebrities on the platform engaging with followers

🎙 Live podcasting style for moderators hosting rooms

  • Content monetization rumored to be in the works

🤝 A strictly networking atmosphere for gaining connections

  • Exposure to individuals from different backgrounds/culture

🎯 Connecting with millennials/genz passionate about similar interests

“Right now there is a lot of hustle porn and MAKE your MONEY MOVE$ action happening. Scroll through the rooms that aggregate at the top: “Millionaire Moves,” “Bitcoin is the way!” “GROW YOUR BUSINESS WITH A MASTER.” -Tom Webster

Clubhouse has become quite controversial due to moderators spreading racism, hate speech, and content abuse — meanwhile, the reports aren’t taken seriously.

I was in a room with a self-absorb speaker who was bashing a journalist for publishing an article about him being racist because he said the n-word in his songs *numerous times* … keep in mind, this individual is NOT black. I was furious. Not only was it sickening to hear this guy say the journalist was in the “wrong” for “ruining his reputation,” but this article was published 3 years ago, and he still hasn’t realized why he was in the wrong, and has no place using such derogatory word.

Now don’t get me wrong, besides that situation, I truly adore the app. I’ve met some incredible people with genuine intentions of wanting friends on this app, and it’s been an enjoyable experience. It’s not everyday I make friends with individuals around my age interested in the Tech & AI Industry!

Spaces has been gaining recognition from influencers with a large following, Gary Vee, being one of the individuals. Gary took to twitter to discuss the idea of CH having a competitor, and although he’s very active on twitter, he hasn’t started a Space, or become a beta tester yet. Who knows… maybe we’ll see him hosting soon?

So… Spaces or CH?

I might be bias about my preference for Spaces over Clubhouse because I love twitter, and I’m currently a beta tester, so you tell me!! 💭 If you’re using CH or Spaces, which platform do you prefer?

Let’s talk on LinkedIn, Twitter or the Gram! 🎉 CH username: Alister
