Twitter intros Tip Jar feature
Twitter has recently introduced a new Tip Jar feature—a new way for people to send and receive tips.
As per Twitter, the Tip Jar is an easy way to support the voices that make up the conversations on Twitter. The first step in creating new ways for people to receive and show support on Twitter—with money.
Users will know their account’s Tip Jar is enabled if a Tip Jar icon is displayed next to the follow button on their profile page. Tapping the icon will display a list of payment services or platforms that the account has enabled.
Furthermore, everyone using Twitter in English can send tips to applicable accounts on Twitter for Android and iOS. For now, a limited group of people worldwide who use Twitter in English can add Tip Jar to their profile and accept tips, according to Twitter.
The group includes creators, journalists, experts, and nonprofits. Additionally, more people will be able to add Tip Jar to their profile, expanding to more languages.
Do note that payment service availability and features vary by region.
