The Twitter tip jar is a feature on Twitter that allows you to add links to your Twitter profile for payment service. While users can support one another on Twitter through Likes, Retweets, and Follows, this feature provides them with a new way to show their support.
Tip Jar Twitter was introduced by Twitter to drive conversation and allow users to support each other with money.
There are several third-party payment services to choose from like Venmo, Wealthsimple Cash, Paytm, Bandcamp, Ethereum Address, and Patreon.
So how to add Tip Jar to Twitter so you can start sending (and receiving) tips? Let’s find out.
Using the Twitter Tip jar is a straightforward process. When you visit someone’s profile who has set up Twitter Tip Jar, you will see a money icon next to the Follow button.
If you are using Android, you will also find the money icon inside Twitter Spaces when you tap their profile. Tap the icon and it will show you a link to third-party payment services.
The tip you send them, and the activity will be subject to the terms and conditions of the payment service. Your name, username, and other details may be shared with the recipient of the tip.
Twitter also allows you to send tips through Ethereum and Bitcoin. If you are using a wallet, you can copy and paste their Ethereum or Bitcoin address to your wallet. Once the details are pasted in your wallet, you can then proceed to send the tip to the user. You can send any amount of tip you want, but there may be a limit imposed by third-party payment services.
Twitter Tip Jar Eligibility
Anyone over the age of 18 can use Twitter Tip Jar to send and receive tips. You will need to ensure that you comply with the terms and conditions of the payment service you are using. The feature is generally used by journalists, creative professionals, writers, and content creators on Twitter.
Tips are sent on the platform to support the content of creators, reward someone, or show your appreciation.
Twitter Tip Jar Vs. Super Follows
Twitter Tip Jar is not the same as Super Follows. Profiles offering the Super Follows feature can allow you to become a Super Follower to access bonus Tweets and exclusive content. It provides you badges so you can stand out from other followers.
