Twitter is releasing a new tool called ‘Tip Jar’ for users to receive tips from others all around the world as a way of showing support for the user. Only a small number of users may currently add the ‘Tip Jar’ function to their accounts.
If you notice a Tip Jar icon next to the Follow button on an account’s profile page, you know it’s enabled. If you press the symbol, a list of payment services or platforms that the account has enabled will appear.
One may choose the payment service or platform they want, and they’ll be transported away from Twitter to the chosen app, where they may demonstrate their support in the amount they choose. Bandcamp, Cash App, Patreon, PayPal, and Venmo are some of the current systems that allow you to give and receive tips. Tips may also be sent from inside Spaces on Android. Twitter further clarifies that it does not collect a percentage of tips given to the account.
“Tip Jar is a simple way to show your appreciation for the amazing people that contribute to the Twitter discussion. This is the first step in our effort to provide new methods for users to receive and demonstrate support on Twitter – through monetary contributions “, Twitter claims.
Starting today, everyone who uses Twitter in English may send tips to the appropriate Twitter accounts on iOS and Android. According to Twitter, only a small number of users who use Twitter in English may add Tip Jar to their profile and receive tips right now.
Creators, journalists, specialists, and charities make up this group. Additional users will be able to add Tip Jar to their profile in the near future, and Twitter will expand the function to include more languages.
