Twitter to allow tipping with Bitcoin

Twitter announced on Thursday a new feature called Tips which enables users to reward their favorite accounts and bloggers with cash and Bitcoin payments through a number of money transfer and fundraising platforms.

"We want everyone on Twitter to have access to pathways to get paid. Digital currencies that encourage more people to participate in the economy and help people send each other money across borders and with as little friction as possible – help us get there," wrote Esther Crawford, Product Manager at Twitter.

Bitcoin payments will be authorized through the Strike application, available in El Salvador and most of the United States. Among other participating platforms for cash transfers are Patreon, Venmo and GoFundMe.
