The new feature is called “Tip Jar”, which allows money to be sent through Twitter, in lieu of displaying PayPal account details or a Venmo handle. An account’s Tip Jar is enabled by an icon next to the Follow button on their profile page.

Tapping the icon will display a list of payment services or platforms that the account has enabled. The services currently enabled by Twitter include Bandcamp, Cash App, Patreon, PayPal, and Venmo.

Payment service availability will vary region-by-region, however. On Android, tips can also be sent within Spaces. Now, this is a new one. You will be able to tip people within your space. The world is indeed evolving and moving fast.

“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,” Twitter said in a statement.
