Earlier this year, Twitter said it was exploring features like tips in order to give people a way to pay other Twitter users.
More evidence is now emerging that the tip feature may be on the way, as Twitter is testing it internally.
And theI participated Researcher (Jane Manchun Wong), known for researching features in social networking apps, photos showing that Twitter can offer a tip button within user accounts.
Similar to Twitter Spaces, which are clubhouse-like social voice rooms, the tip button is integrated with some of the popular payment services, including PayPal, Bandcamp, Patreon, Venmo, and the Cash App.
The button now appears next to the Edit Account option, so people can pay users for Tweets, however It is not clear if there will be any restrictions on who can place the tip button on their account.
It appears that the feature could be locked in some way, which may require you to have a certain number of followers or have your account verified via a blue badge.
It is important to keep in mind that although this button is hidden in the Twitter app, this does not necessarily mean that this feature may become available to the public.
However, this would make sense since Twitter in February announced a new paid service called Super Follow, which allows users to pay to access tweets and other exclusive content from the creators.
It is unclear when Super Follow, which allows celebrities to monetize tweets by charging followers, thus helping the micro-blogging platform grow revenue, may be officially introduced to the audience.
The CEO of Twitter said earlier this year: The company aims to double its total annual revenue to more than $ 7.5 billion in 2023 with at least 315 million active daily users who can be monetized.
