Twitter Planning To Implement New Tip Jar Button To Users’ Profile


Twitter has been working on various features of late. Earlier there were reports that the microblogging site was implementing a tip jar feature in Spaces, its new audio-based platform. The news was later confirmed by the company. Now there are reports that the company is working on adding a tip jar to Twitter users’ profile as well. This is being talked about because of a new button hidden in its app. Researcher Jane Manchun Wong is famous for finding new features of social media platforms. Wong has found that Twitter is internally testing this new tip jar button for user profiles.

Just like the feature that will soon come to Twitter Spaces, the tip jar button will be linked with some of the very popular payment services like Bandcamp, Cash App, PayPal, Patreon, and Venmo. According to the information shared by Wong, right now the button appears just after the Edit Profile option. But it must be kept in mind that Twitter testing this button doesn’t guarantee the release for the public. However, this makes sense as the microblogging site has already announced Super Follow, a new paid service. This feature will allow users to make payments for accessing tweets and other exclusive content of creators. But Twitter is yet to officially announce the release date of Super Follow.

Recently, Wong provided details about how Twitter Spaces can allow users to leave the conversation in the background. Twitter Spaces has been launched after the many-fold growth of only audio app Clubhouse. The app is currently available for iOS users only and the company has hinted that the android version will be launched soon. Some reports claimed that the date for the launch of the android version of Clubhouse has been finalized and it could be launched as soon as in May. Launched in April 2020, Clubhouse gained popularity within a short span of time. At the end of February this year, the app was downloaded by 10 million users.
