How To Easily Send and Receive Money on Twitter via Tips

It’s no longer news that Twitter has added a new feature called Tips which allows users to add payment links to their Twitter profile, send and receive money on Twitter via selected third-party payment services.

In this article, we will be walking you through how you can send and receive money on Twitter using the tips feature but before we continue, let’s properly discuss what Tips is all about.

What is Tips?

Tip is simply a feature in Twitter that lets you add links to select third-party payment services to your Twitter profile. When you turn on Tips on your profile, people can support you by tapping on your Tips icon to send you money or Bitcoin off-platform via the third-party payment services and platforms you have added.

How To Set Up My Tips

On iOS or Android, go to Edit Profile. 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.

Once you have agreed to the General Tipping policy, you will be brought to the Tips settings screen. Toggle Allow tips to on and then choose the third-party service(s) you’d like to use. Add in your third-party service username(s). You will need to have at least one username entered for your Tips icon to appear on your Twitter profile.

When you add a third-party payment service to your profile, please note that your username on that service will be publicly linked to your Twitter account. Information about you, including, but not limited to, your full name, address, and your tip may be shared with the recipient or others, subject to the terms of the third-party payment service. Please review each service’s terms for more details.

Who Can Send and Receive Tips and What Can I Use Tips for?

  • You must be at least 18 years old to request, receive, or send tips via Tips or anywhere on the platform.
  • You can tip to show support, show appreciation, help out or reward anyone you want – from emerging creators and journalists to Twitter Spaces hosts and more. Because tipping occurs through third-party payment services, you must also ensure that your tips comply with the terms and policies of those services.
  • Note: Please consult Twitter’s General Tipping policy to learn more about who can request or give tips and for what.
  • Sending someone a tip does not entitle you to any premium or exclusive content from them, nor does it replace purchasing a ticket to Ticketed Spaces or purchasing a Super Follows subscription.

What Percentage Will The Person Receive, If I Send a Tip?

Tips in the form of money and Bitcoin are sent off Twitter via third-party payment services. Twitter will not receive any portion of these payments, but third-party payment services may charge fees.

How To Send Someone a Tip

You can tip people using the Tips icon (Money Icon) if they have toggled the feature on and added their usernames from third-party payment processors. On both iOS and Android, you will find the Tips feature on the main Twitter profile under the icon. On Android, you will also find the icon when you tap on the profile of someone inside of Twitter Spaces.

When you tap to send the tip, Twitter will link you off of the Twitter platform to the app or website of the third-party payment service you selected. Your tip and activity on that service will be subject to the third-party payment service’s terms.

When you send Bitcoin through Strike, you’ll be able to switch between seeing the currency in Satoshi (Sats) or BTC.

Through Tips, you’ll also be able to copy someone’s Bitcoin or Ethereum address and paste their address into whatever wallet you use.

You will be able to send tips from your account on the third-party service and recipients will be able to see your username on that service. Information about you, including, but not limited to, your full name, address, and tip may be shared with the recipient or others, subject to the terms of the third-party payment service. Please review each service’s terms for more details.

How To Choose A Payment Provider For Tipping

When you set up or add additional third-party service(s) to, through your Tips settings, you may only choose from the select third-party service(s) listed in your Tips settings. Twitter reserves the right, at our discretion, to add, modify, or remove the specific third-party service(s) (in any given country) that are available to link to Tips.

Is There A Currency Limit On How Much You Can Tip?

Twitter does not impose limits on the amount you can tip; however, third-party payment platforms, subject to their terms of service, may impose limits on the amount you can tip.
