As the online publication the Daily Hodl notes, Twitter let its 6,900,000 followers know that it will now be incorporating wallet addresses that are associated with top altcoin Ethereum (ETH) into its tipping feature.

Twitter also highlighted the fact that it will also be adding several new third-party payments services for sending the tips.

“Have you set up Tips on your profile yet so it’s easy for people to show their support? Yes: cool, we’ve added Paga, Barter by Flutterwave, Paytm, and the option to add your Ethereum address.”

It’s also important to note the fact that Twitter first rolled out its tipping feature last September.

This allowed users to instantly send funds, including cash and top crypto asset by market cap Bitcoin (BTC), to any Twitter user in the world for free utilizing payments protocol Strike.

Just to refresh your memory, Strike is an app that processes BTC transactions via the Lightning Network.

It’s also important to mention that now, users can send Ethereum straight to another user’s ETH wallet, according to Twitter’s website.

“Through Tips, you’ll be able to copy someone’s Bitcoin or Ethereum address and paste their address into whatever wallet you use.”

Other prominent payments platforms compatible with Twitter’s Tips feature include the following: CashApp, Patreon, GoFundMe, and Venmo.

Twitter in the news

It’s been revealed that Twitter made a move for NFT lovers. People have been using NFTs as profile pics on Twitter and there has been massive skepticism about the durability of ownership over the digital assets.

CoinDesk just revealed that Twitter released an official verification mechanism for NFT profile pics.

“Link your Ethereum wallet to your Twitter account, and you’ll be presented with a list of NFTs you own (verification is available only for Ethereum-based NFTs, at the moment, though a representative for the company clarified that this is only the “first iteration” of a feature that may go on to support other blockchains),” CoinDesk noted not too long ago.
