Back in May, the business tested tipping as a feature to see whether it might help creators earn money from their followers for the material they share on Twitter.
On Thursday, the business said its Tips feature would be accessible to all Apple iOS users this week and Android users in the following weeks.
Previously, customers could tip with fiat money using more traditional payment systems like Square’s Cash App and PayPal’s Venmo.
The Strike bitcoin lighting wallet service will be integrated with Twitter so that creators can receive bitcoin tips. Users will also be able to enter their wallet address to send and receive these cryptocurrency tips.
Twitter does not take a percentage of any money given via its Tips function.
The addition of bitcoin to Twitter’s tip function is not surprising given that CEO Jack Dorsey is a prominent advocate of cryptocurrency.
Dorsey has recently stated that he is interested in trying his hand at bitcoin mining. He has stated that he believes there is nothing more essential to work on than bitcoin. He has even stated that he believes bitcoin will bring worldwide peace and stability.
Twitter also said on Thursday that it is testing functionality that would enable users to verify and display their portfolios of NFT digital assets on the social network.
In addition to blockchain, Twitter announced plans to provide a creator fund for users who host Spaces audio rooms to encourage more live audio events.
