Twitter’s Tips feature allows you to add third-party payment links to your account to collect money from followers. You can even add a cryptocurrency address to Twitter Tips.

Tips are only available in the mobile app, which shouldn’t surprise oft-neglected web users. If you’re solely a desktop user, you’ll need to add your payment link the old-fashioned way and paste it into your profile.

You can start accepting cryptocurrency Tips on Twitter immediately if you’ve got a mobile device and a crypto address ready to share.

Let’s discuss how you can add a crypto address to your Twitter profile and make money—or not—on social media.
