Earlier this year, Twitter introduced its Tips functionality for users. With this option, Twitter users can send money or receive money on the platform. “The tips make it easier by providing a fixed location, right on your profile, where you can link to your Cash App, Patreon, Venmo and other platforms where people can help you,” the company said in a statement. blog post. The company says it doesn’t take any cuts.
How does the Tips function work?
You can tell if an account has tip enabled if you see the ‘money’ icon next to the Follow button on the profile page. Tap the icon and you will see a list of payment services or platforms that the account has activated, and users can select the one they prefer. Please note that the Tips feature is currently not available on the web. The services available include:
* Band camp
* Cash application
* Wealthsimple cash
To note: Twitter users in India can pay with Razorpay.
How do I configure tips on my Twitter account?
On iOS or Android, navigate to Edit Profile. Then tap Tips, which is off by default. You will need to agree to Twitter’s general tip policy to enable tips on your profile.
Once you agree to the general tip policy, you will be taken to the tip settings screen. Activate “Allow tips”, then choose the third-party service you want to use. In India, it is Razorpay. You will need to have entered at least one username for your Tips icon to appear on your Twitter profile.
When adding a third-party payment service to your profile, please note that your username on that service will be publicly linked to your Twitter account. Information about you, including, but not limited to, your full name, address, and tip may be shared with the recipient or others, subject to the terms of the third-party payment service.
Who can send and receive tips and what can I use them for?
You must be at least 18 years old to request, receive or send tips through Tips or anywhere on Twitter.
You can tip to show your support, show appreciation, help or reward whoever you want – from emerging designers to Twitter spaces hosts and more. Since tips occur through third-party payment services, you should also ensure that your tips comply with the terms and policies of those services.
Does sending tips entitle users to exclusive service / content on Twitter?
No, tipping someone does not entitle you to any premium or exclusive content from them, nor does it replace the purchase of a ticket for Paid spaces or the purchase of a Super Follows subscription.
If I tip, what percentage will the person receive?
Tips in the form of cash and Bitcoin are sent to Twitter through third-party payment services. Twitter will not receive any portion of these payments, but third-party payment services may charge a fee.
How do I tip someone?
You can tip people using the Tips icon if they have enabled the feature and added their usernames from third-party payment processors. On iOS and Android, you’ll find the Tips feature on the main Twitter profile under the icon. On Android, you’ll also find the icon when you tap on someone’s profile in Twitter Spaces.
How to choose a payment provider for tips?
When you configure or add an additional third-party service through your advice settings, you can only choose from the selected third-party services listed in your advice settings.
Is there a limit to the tip you can give?
Twitter places no limit on the amount users can tip; however, third-party payment platforms may place limits on the amount you can tip.
