Previously, the world record for the largest Twitter Space belonged to Pakistan’s former Prime Minister, Imran Khan, and before him, K-POP, the Korean Music band, held the top spot. However, a new world record in Twitter Space has now been set by Robin Wheeler, thanks to Elon Musk. Robin hosted a Twitter Space for a Q&A session following Elon Musk’s $44 Billion Twitter takeover. This extraordinary Space featured Elon Musk as a speaker, who’s also currently the most followed person on Twitter, overtaking Obama as the most followed person.
What could be a better way to share your thoughts than through Twitter Spaces, especially after its acquisition for $44 billion?

Elon Musk also shared his views and insights on upcoming developments.
Elon Musk’s space on Twitter files also holds the record for the longest most significant Twitter Space that continued for 5:26:46 hours.
If we consider the overall numbers across platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Instagram Live, and others, Pakistan’s former Prime Minister, Imran Khan, holds the record for being the most listened-to personality, surpassing even Elon Musk.
Within these spaces, Imran Khan, a legendary figure in the world of cricket and a prominent philanthropist in the country, engages in discussions about the latest political developments with his followers. Even though Khan is down to the 3rd spot on this list, his latest Space attracted 702K+ listeners (and counting), breaking his previous record of 503K+. He also has a whopping 19.2 million followers, making him one of the most followed political figures on Twitter.
