Following the iOS release, Twitter’s in-app tipping option is now available to all Android users over the age of 18.
With Tips, we’re making it easier to point people to your payment profiles. This will enable you to assist the individuals who are driving the conversation on Twitter. This is whether you want to support a content creator, help someone fundraise, tip someone who just needs a hand, or thank someone for making you laugh.
After claims that the company was working on a direct payment option, the microblogging site launched the functionality in May. The Android introduction of “Tips” comes a month after Twitter released “Ticketed Spaces” on the platform.
Hosts on Spaces, Twitter’s live audio room feature, can now sell access to Spaces using this functionality.. Social media giant noted that the feature is a way to reward creators for their time and effort in hosting and moderating public conversations.
