activate Twitter Tips, start receiving money

At last, the payments have reached Twitter. Now you can get paid to tweet or raise money for a charity from the platform itself. The new feature that makes this possible is called Tips and you must activate it so that your followers can send you money or Bitcoin. Not sure how to activate it? Don’t worry, we’ll show you how to do it right away and we’ll tell you some things to keep in mind.

How you can receive Tips on Twitter: steps to activate the function

The only requirement to activate Tips on Twitter is to be of legal age (be over 18 years old). If you have no problem with that, then follow these steps to activate Tips:

  • Go to the Twitter app.
  • Enter your profile (press your photo and then your username).
  • Click on Edit profile.
  • At the bottom, you will see the Tip option. Press it to activate it.
  • Now, you will have to add your payment methods. The options are Bandcamp, Cash app, Patreon, PayPal, and Venmo.
  • Accepts everything and is readyThey can now start sending you money on Twitter!

It is worth clarifying that, at the time of writing this article, the Tipping function is only available for some selected users and in some specific regions (Spain is one of them). If the option to activate it does not appear to you, do not worry because Twitter intends to launch it for all users progressively soon.

Ah! And right now the Tips are only enabled in the Twitter app for iPhone (they do not appear on iPad, Android, or web version). But soon you will be able to activate them from any device, according to Twitter’s plans.

How to send Tips (money) on Twitter?

If you are not interested in receiving money on Twitter and instead prefer to financially support your favorite tweeters or charitable causes promoted through this social network, then follow these steps to send Tips:

  • Go to the profile of the Twitter account you want to send money to.
  • If the user has activated the function, next to the Follow / Unfollow button, you will see the icon of a wad of bills. Press it.
  • Then, Twitter will show you the available payment options (the ones the user chose when activating the Tips). Choose the one that suits you best.
    • You can also send Bitcoin through Strike (if the user accepts it).
  • Next, you will automatically go to the page of the selected payment platform. Enter the amount to send and accept everything.

Ready! The user will receive 100% of the money sent (Twitter does not keep anything), subtracting the commission that the payment platform you used takes (if applicable). It is also important to mention that Twitter does not impose any limit on the number of Tips you can send, but the payment platform you use may.

On the other hand, you should know that Tips have nothing to do with the Super Follow subscription or with SpacesThey are separate payments. Anyway, if you have any questions about it, leave us a comment so we can help you.
