Twitter enables Ethereum tips for mobile users

Twitter has launched a new tipping option which allows mobile users on iOS and Android to send cryptocurrency payments in ether, the native token of the ethereum blockchain, to their favorite influencers.

Several months ago, Twitter enabled tips in bitcoin via the Lightning network, a layer designed for smaller transfers with extremely small fees, for all mobile users.

The social media giant has made great efforts to inegrate cryptocurrencies throughout their platform. In January, Twitter allowed Blue subsscribers to attach NFTs to their profile pictures.

While Twitter has decided not impose limits on tips, third-party payment platforms that Twitter works with to handle the crypto transfer may impose their own limits.
