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.

Here’s how you can use Tips to add a cryptocurrency address to your Twitter profile:
When you set up Tips for the first time, Twitter prompts you to Tweet about it.
With your cryptocurrency address proudly displayed on your profile, now’s the perfect time to start begging your Twitter followers for loose change like some tech-savvy internet hobo.
Will Twitter add more crypto options to Tips?
As the number of cryptocurrencies seems determined to surpass podcasts—everyone has one—Twitter may add more choices to the Tips list.
While Bitcoin and Ethereum appear to be fan favorites, a baffling number of other options exist. That leaves a lot of potential for new additions.
