Noticing that the younger generation tends to be on Twitter, Janique-ka turned to the platform to build a connection to home. She created an RSS feed bot to generate the latest news from St. Vincent to Twitter, helping her community stay up to date.
But she didn’t stop there. When Twitter Spaces launched, offering a new way for people to stay connected through live audio conversations, Janique-ka knew that she had to be a part of the action. Always interested in the future of technology, she immediately signed up to be a beta tester.
For Janique-ka, the biggest draw to Spaces was that it was being built out in the public and in real-time. So, she rolled up her sleeves and got to work thinking about what she, as a user, would want, given the available inputs. Early on, she noticed it was difficult to find particular Spaces, and realized she could create a way to make the process of searching easier. And from this idea, the Spaces Search app was born.
With her Spaces Search app, users can type in different keywords of topics they’re interested in, hit search and find relevant Spaces they can click to open and join.
