Twitter, the social media platform, has added fresh payment services to their existing tipping options, including Ether (ETH), while in September 2021, the social media platform enabled Bitcoin (BTC) payments as the first cryptocurrency payment option available via its tipping jar.
It has been reported that users looking to receive ETH tips simply need to enable the platform's tipping features and add an Ethereum address to the dedicated section of their profile. An attempt to add an ENS domain name in place of a full alphanumeric address proved unsuccessful, prompting an error box that indicated punctuation was invalid.
However, when it comes to Bitcoin, tips can be sent through the Lightning Network, which sends payment using the Strike app. Twitter provided no other details pertaining to tipping in ETH.
The report said that for now, tips are only available for users on iOS and Android phones. According to Twitter, users keep 100% of the tips they receive. The company stated that tips can be used to “show support, show appreciation, help out or reward anyone you want – from emerging creators and journalists to Twitter Spaces hosts and more.” Other supported payment services include Cash App, GoFundMe, Patreon, Wealthsimple, and Venmo.
Thus, recently, Twitter rolled out a feature that allows Twitter Blue users to upload nonfungible tokens (NFTs) as their profile pictures but limited that capability to iOS.
