Twitter has apparently tested the bitcoin tip option in its “Tip Jar”. This is in line with Jack Dorsey’s statement that bitcoin is an important part Twitter’s future and that cryptocurrency will be a part of several upcoming commodities.
Twitter apparently tested the Bitcoin tip option
Twitter Inc. (NYSE : TWTR), is reportedly testing a Bitcoin failover feature. This development follows CEO Jack Dorsey’s July hint that bitcoin could be integrated in several products, including Tip Jar. Macrumors reportedTuesday:
Twitter’s latest beta update adds support to provide content creators bitcoin tips using the “Tipjar” feature that Twitter introduced earlier in the year.
“Bitcoin is not yet available as an advisory option for beta users, but beta code suggests that Twitter is in the process of rolling it out,” the post describes. “Details from the most recent beta from Twitter indicate users will be directed towards a Bitcoin tutorial that includes details about the Bitcoin Lightning Network and custodian as well as non-custodian BitcoinWallets.”
Twitter user Alessandro Paluzzi (@alex193a), tweeted a screenshot showing how to get Bitcoin tips on Twitter. The instruction states that a Strike account is required, stating, “We are using Strike to generate Bitcoin Lightning invoices, so you will need to connect your account to accept Bitcoin tips. “

Twitter IntroducedTip Jar May. Tip Jar in May
In July, Dorsey stated that bitcoin was a major part of Twitter’s future. He noted that bitcoin is the best candidate to be the internet’s native cryptocurrency. He was of the opinion at the time: “If the internet has a native currency, a global currency, we can go much faster with products like Super Follows, Commerce, Subscription, Tip Jar, and we can reach every person on the planet because of that instead of taking a market-by-market approach.
