Clubhouse forbids the content of conversations from being exposed or recorded without permission, but Beykpour said in an interview with The Verge, 'We plan to add recording capabilities to Spaces.' 'Spaces' recording capabilities can be really powerful, but not all the organizers and participants of the chat are happy with the recording. The consent of the organizers and all the participants is very important. That's a big deal, 'he said, indicating his intention to give strict permission settings to recordings.

MUO , a tech media, said, 'When you call a company or government office, you will hear the message'This conversation has been recorded.'Twitter may display a pop-up indicating that it was recorded in the same way. There is, 'he speculates about the implementation of Spaces' recording permission settings.

Since Twitter also has a dedicated app distributed on the App Store and Google Play, it is expected that a fee will be charged for the paid follow function 'Super Follow'. So The Verge asked Beykpour, 'Do you have any opinion about the 30% fee charged for the app distribution platform?' Beykpour said, 'We didn't get a dollar so far. Even if the amount of money we get from Superfollow drops from $ 10 to $ 7. We can make $ 7 more than before.' 'Sure, I'm interested in turning $ 7 into $ 9, but so far Twitter hasn't focused on app distribution platform fees,' he said, accepting app distribution platform fees. I have stated that.
