Android users on Twitter may now pay to have the Spaces button removed

Twitter Blue has finally begun allowing Android members to modify the app’s menu bar. The functionality, which was previously only accessible on iOS, allows you to remove the Spaces symbol from the center of your menu bar (and of course, remove some of the other tabs if you want, too).

You may use custom navigation to decrease the number of shown tabs to as low as two or maintain all five that appear by default – useful if you’re bored of swiping your finger over the Spaces tab simply to get to your DMs and alerts. Twitter first tested the Spaces tab on iOS last year and pushed it out on Android in May, giving more inconvenienced users a cause to pay up for the $2.99 / month Blue subscription established last year.

However, Blue cannot save us from every feature that clogs up the app. Twitter stated last week that it will begin adding more information in the banner at the top of your timeline that indicates active Spaces. While there is currently no option to turn this banner down completely (neither for free nor for Blue subscribers), it will now show who is hosting the Space, who shares a tweet in the Space, and pertinent Topics.
