The Twitter platform is further expanding its catalog of functions, without an editing function, but with a new option called Tip Jar. In fact, some users can now enable this new feature (by changing their profile) which will add a new icon next to the one that can be used to send or subscribe to DMs.
The best Android smartphones
Money for the best Twittos
A Tip Jar feature that subscribers can use to financially support their favorite tweeters. In fact, when configuring the button, the user can pair his preferred payment services (Paypal, Patreon, Venmo, etc.). On the subscriber page, by clicking on the “Tip Glass” button, he can send the sum of his choice to his favorite Twittos as a support, reward or other means.
“Tip Jar is an easy way to add to the amazing voices that fuel the conversation on Twitter. This is a first step in our work to create new ways in which people can receive and show their support on Twitter – with money, ”explains Twitter on her blog.
It is therefore natural for those who want to reward the best tweeters with a tipping system to be able to reply to, like and retweet messages as well. The Tip Jar feature is currently rolling out for the iOS and Android versions of the Twitter app, but not all users are affected. In fact, only certain elected officials can add Tip Jar to their account, especially journalists, creators, media and other organizations.
Twitter should soon expand the possibilities of Tip Jar, open the function to more users and make it available in new countries. Now you can see how to use this new feature, which is undoubtedly being abused by some, even though Twitter wants it to be of benefit to nonprofits in particular.
