Twitter provides in-app chip functionality for all Android users over the age of 18.Started.. It started in September on iOS. According to the company, this “Tips” feature is aimed at users who want to get financial support from their followers directly within the app through Cash App, Paypal, Venmo, and Patreon. Android users can now set up to receive tips from their profile by tapping the “Edit Profile” button and selecting “Tips”.

“The Tips feature creates an easy way to show people a link to your payment profile, helping content creators, helping them raise money, tipping people who just need help, and making people laugh. We make it easy to support people who are creating conversations on Twitter, such as thanks. “Explaining

Twitter first introduced this feature in May, but before that, it was reported that the company was working on a direct payment option. A month before the release of the Android version of “Tips,” the company started rolling out “Ticketed Spaces” on Android.

Twitter isn’t the only social media platform that is promoting monetization and livelihood support for creators. TikTok told TechCrunch in October 2021 that it was testing a new ability to pass chips within the app. This feature allows creators to receive money from fans outside of the TikTok LIVE stream, which already has chips installed. The company has revealed that this feature is still not widely available as part of limited testing for the foreseeable future.

TikTok and Twitter’s direct chip capabilities seem to be a way to compete with digital platforms like Instagram and YouTube, which offer creators a way to make money.
