Twitter, official test start of new function “Tip Jar” that can send money

Twitter announced on the 7th that it has started testing a new feature “Tip Jar” that makes it easy to send tips.

This throwing feature is one of the new elements that Twitter announced to test at the end of February. After that, clues were discovered that were being tested internally on Twitter, but this time it was finally officially announced.

A Tip Jar button has been added to the profile of the user who enabled this function, and other users can easily send money by pressing the button. Tip Jar can be linked to payment methods such as Bandcamp, Patreon, PayPal, Venmo and Cash App, and the recipient can specify the desired remittance method.

To see if Tip Jar is enabled for your account, go to your Twitter app profile[変更]Tap the button.So as an option[Tip Jar]If you see, log in to one of the available payment services and associate it.

Tip Jar is different from the paid function “Super Follow” that allows creators to offer special content in exchange for money, and it seems that the test started first. Various SNS such as YouTube, TikTok, and Clubhouse have prepared monetization methods such as a monetization system, and the competition to enclose attractive creators is heating up, and Twitter may have had to follow in order to prevent withdrawal. Maybe.
