How to Set Up Tips and Get Paid for Your Tweets in Crypto

Tips is a feature that lets you add links to select third-party payment services to your Twitter profile.

So here are 3 quick steps on your way to setting up Tips on Twitter:

1. Toggle Allow Tips

On iOS or Android, go to Edit Profile and then tap Tips, which is off by default. You will be required to consent to Twitter’s General Tipping policy to turn on Tips on your profile.

These steps will lead you to the following page that has the title “Tips.” You can now toggle “Allow Tips.”

2. Add Payment Service

Once you have toggled Allow tips, you can simply then choose the third-party service(s) you’d like to use.

It’s no stress as Twitter will reveal the payment services available to you.

3. Enter Payment Address

Some extra information to know about tips:

  • Twitter does not receive any portion of tip payments but third-party payment services may charge fees when a user taps Tip via a third party app
  • For BTC or ETH addresses, you’ll be copying an address and pasting into whatever wallet you use.
