Twitter is testing out a new feature that will let users send and receive money through a “Tip Jar.”
The feature will hook up through cash apps including Bandcamp, Patreon, PayPal, Venmo, and Cash App.
It’s being rolled out to some users now, but Twitter hinted more information would be “coming soon.”

Interestingly enough, the money is sent directly to the user via one of these services without going through the App Store’s in-app purchases system — which means that Twitter is not paying the 30% commission to Apple.
To check if you can already enable Tip Jar on your account, open the Twitter app, go to your profile, and tap the Edit Profile button. If you see Tip Jar in the options, tap on it, and then log in to one of the payment services available.
Tip Jar comes ahead of Super Follow, which will let users pay to access tweets, fleets, and other exclusive content from creators. According to Twitter, Tip Jar will only be available to selected users for now, so not every user will be able to use it.
