Twitter launches crypto tipping for all users

Social media giant Twitter reportedly is now enabling cryptocurrency options to its tipping jar, allowing any user to pay through the platform.

In a Sept. 23 blog post, Twitter staff product manager Esther Crawford said the crypto tips feature was now available for all iOS users globally and the platform plans to roll out options for Android in the coming weeks. The crypto option will allow users to link their Cash App, Patreon, Venmo, Chipper, Bandcamp, Razorpay, GoFundMe, PicPay, and Wealthsimple Cash to their Twitter bios and individual Tweets to receive funds.

“We want everyone on Twitter to have access to pathways to get paid,” said Crawford. “Digital currencies that encourage more people to participate in the economy and help people send each other money across borders and with as little friction as possible – help us get there.”

In addition to the linked services, Twitter tips are available to use through the Bitcoin (BTC) Lightning Network, which sends payment using the Strike app, or by adding a BTC address directly to one’s profile. “Twitter takes no cut,” according to Crawford.
