According to a blog post “Tip Jar is an easy way to support the incredible voices that make up the conversation on Twitter. This is the first step in our work to create new ways for people to receive and show support on Twitter – with money.”
The new feature utilizes different payment platform like PayPal, Venmo, Patreon, cashApp and other.
Twitter users can link their account with Tip Jar to any of these payment providers with no fees or additional charges.
“We see you – sharing your PayPal link after your Tweet goes viral, adding your Cashtag to your profile so people can support your work, dropping your Venmo handle on your birthday or if you just need some extra help,” the company said in a statement.
“You drive the conversation on Twitter and we want to make it easier for you to support each other beyond Follows, Retweets, and Likes. Today, we’re introducing Tip Jar – a new way for people to send and receive tips.”
The Tip Jar account is enabled when Tip Jar icon appears next to the Follow button on the profile page. To pay them, simply tap the icon and the list of payment services the user has enabled will appear then select which payment service you prefer and you’ll be transferred from Twitter to the site where you can “show your support in the amount you choose.”
Twitter has released series of features this year as part of its efforts to grow Twitter’s user base to 315 million daily active users by the end of 2023.
The company also rolled out bigger images and cropping control that allows images to display in full without any cropping on iOS and Android.
