Sphere started as a real-time question-and-answer-based community platform in 2016. later it was changed to a group chat app.

After that, it raised around $30 million from investors which included, AirBNB, Index ventures, Tinder, and Sequoia venture between 2017 – 2019.

In recent days we have already seen, work on Twitter by improving community-building with the release of Communities, Spaces, and features that promote safety, as said by the Sphere.

Also in a blogpost Sphere said, “It will be winding down its only standalone product in November”

D’ Aloisio added to it, “Obviously Sphere was our own thing and that’s no longer relevant to what Twitter is trying to achieve”

With acquisitions of TweetDeck, Magic Pony Technology, and many other startups. The tweeter is getting too aggressive in making its product space.

Hopefully, Sphere under Tweeter will help to improve the community.
