If you are willing to pay, then you just have to click a tip button.
Twitter has said it’s investigating highlights like tipping to give individuals an approach to pay other Twitter user. And now we have additional proof that a tip highlight might be in transit. App researcher Jane Manchun Wong. Shared pictures on Thursday and Friday showing that Twitter could offer a tipping button directly on client profiles.
Here’s one iteration of what it could look like — check out the little blue cash button under the “@wongmjane” watermark in the left image. Clicking or tapping that button. Apparently shows options to let you tip via Bandcamp, Cash App (made by Square, which counts Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey as its CEO, too), Patreon, PayPal, and Venmo.

As you can find in this tweet. Wong additionally discovered proof in March that Twitter is chipping away at a “Tip Jar” highlight for Twitter Spaces. The organization’s Clubhouse-like social sound rooms (Clubhouse just presented its own direct payments include on April 5th).
Here’s another look at the tipping button on profiles, from Wong. These screenshots show a black tipping button instead of a blue one. They also show designs Twitter is apparently testing for its forthcoming Super Follows, which will let you charge followers so they can access extra content. (Think Patreon, but for tweets.)

Twitter announces Communities, like Facebook Groups but on Twitter

Twitter has not officially reported a tipping feature. So there’s no assurance the organization really delivers it openly. Regardless of whether it does. It’s indistinct if there would be any limitations on who could put a tipping button on their profile.
It appears to be conceivable that the feature will be gated somehow or another. Maybe expecting you to have a specific number of supporters or be confirmed.
Stay Tuned. Hope to catch you in the next one. Peace out to you.
