Twitter isn’t shy about pushing unsolicited alerts, so you may have already seen Spaces mentioned without reason or warning. To draw attention to its new tool, Twitter notifies you whenever someone you follow is hosting a session.

However, you should only receive alerts for Spaces when you have push notifications enabled in your browser or mobile app. Most of us already receive enough—or perhaps too many—unsolicited alerts throughout the day.

If you’d prefer to ignore Twitter’s new meeting feature, a quick trip into your settings will restore ignorance and help you avoid yet another social media distraction. Let’s discuss how to disable Spaces notifications on mobile and desktop.
