Tip Jar is an easy way to support the incredible voices that make up the conversation on Twitter. This is a first step in our work to create new ways for people to receive and show support on Twitter – with money.
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. Soon, more people will be able to add Tip Jar to their profile and we’ll expand to more languages.
We’re always looking for feedback and ways to improve updates like Tip Jar – let us know what you think.

Bitcoin is the world's first widely-adopted cryptocurrency. It's a new kind of digital money that lets people securely and directly send money to each other on the internet.
The Lightning Network is a technical innovation that allows for faster payments with lower fees than Bitcoin's primary network.
We use Strike to generate Bitcoin Lightning invoices so you'll need to connect your account to accept Bitcoin tips.
Bitcoin is built on a secure technology called the blockchain. It works on a distributed network and uses the same level of security that banks and the military use to encrypt their systems.
