Tips

Your audience can now do more than just Follow, Like, and Retweet to show their support for your content with Tips.

People were already using their bios and Tweets to promote their chosen payment profiles, and Tips makes it even easier to do. Link your accounts on third-party payment services including Cash App, Venmo, Chipper, Patreon, Strike, Bandcamp, and more. The best part: Twitter takes no cut. 

Payment service availability and features vary by region. When tipping or receiving a tip, you’ll be subject to the third-party payment platform’s terms.
