You can now ‘tip’ your favourite account on Twitter with this new feature – Times of India
NEW DELHI: Twitter is enhancing the user experience by rolling out new and interesting features. The microblogging website has now started rolling out an interesting Tip Jar feature. Available on both Android and iOS this new feature enables users to send money directly to their favourite accounts.
In order to use the tip jar feature you just have to tap on the recently added dollar bill icon placed next to the account holder’s username. On the other hand, users will also be able to toggle the tip jar feature, which means that they can switch it off if they don’t want the money.
Twitter says that the Android users will be able to send money in Twitter’s Clubhouse rival — Spaces.
In an official blog post Twitter said, “Starting today, everyone using Twitter in English can send tips to applicable accounts on Twitter for iOS and Android. For now, a limited group of people around the world who use Twitter in English can add Tip Jar to their profile and accept tips. This group includes creators, journalists, experts, and nonprofits.”
The Tip Jar feature of Twitter also supports multiple payment options like PayPal, Venmo, Bandcamp and others. As mentioned above the feature is presently available to limited users but it will soon expand to more accounts.
Recently, Twitter announced that from now on the users will not see cropped images posted on the social network. Available on both Android and iOS, the new Twitter feature will offer support for full-sized images.
To recall, Twitter users had to crop the image they wish to add to a tweet in 16:9 format. But with this new feature in place, Twitter users will not have to crop the images they wish to upload.
