Twitter Announced Tipping Feature for Android Users

The social media giant Twitter is serious about making sure that their users are getting paid.

micro blogging site, Twitter is rolling out its in-app tipping feature to all Android users above the age of 18, following the iOS launch in September.

The platforms says the “Tipsl” feature is geared toward users looking to get a little financial support from their followers through Cash App, PayPal, Venmo and Patreon directly through the app.

Now Android users can now get set up to receive tips from their profile by tapping the “Edit profile” button and then selecting “Tips” to start.

“With Tips, we’re creating an easy way to direct people to links to your payment profiles and we’re making it easier to support the people driving the conversation on Twitter – whether you want to support a content creator, help someone fundraise, tip someone who just needs some help or thank someone for making you laugh,” the social media giant noted.

Twitter is not only tech platform that allows users to receive money.

TikTok is currently testing the same feature that will allow creators to accept money from fans outside of TikTok LIVE streams.

Tips in the form of money and Bitcoin are sent off Twitter via third-party payment services. Twitter will not receive any portion of these payments, but the third-party payment services may charge fees, Twitter added.
