TDYR 409 – Twitter Spaces now open to most users on IOS/Android – and a pipeline of new features

Twitter Spaces is now available to everyone on iOS and Android with more than 600 followers. In this episode, I talk about all the changes Twitter has made to Spaces since episode 406 back in February, and all the features they have said are coming soon.

TDYR 408 – What are Wikipedia Talk pages? How do they work?

If you go to the top of a Wikipedia article, there is a "Talk" tab in the upper left that brings you to the "Talk page" for an article. What is this Talk page for? How is it used? What happens on that page? In this episode, I talk about the role of Talk pages in enabling collaboration between editors to improve articles. I explain the various use cases and WHY you might want to look at Talk pages to understand more. I also discuss user talk pages and sending messages to other editors.
