Twitter brings Tips feature to all users, adds support for crypto tips
In May, Twitter started rolling out its Tip Jar feature for some users. With this option, creators were able to easily receive money from their followers. Now, it’s broadly available for all iOS users — and there’s even support for crypto.
“People already drop links to their payment profiles in their bios and in their Tweets. Tips makes this easier to do, offering one fixed spot, right on your profile,” Twitter explains. The company says it’s possible to link to your Cash App, Patreon, Venmo, and other platforms where people can support you.
According to a blog post, this feature is first rolling out to people on iOS, and it will bring Tips to people on Android over the coming weeks.
To tip people, you need to go to their profiles and tap on a new icon next to the Follow button. There, you can select which platform you want to send
