Starting today, everyone using Twitter in English can send tips to applicable accounts on Twitter for iOS and Android. For now, a limited group of people around the world who use Twitter in English can add Tip Jar to their profile and accept tips. This group includes creators, journalists, experts, and nonprofits. Soon, more people will be able to add Tip Jar to their profile and we’ll expand to more languages.
Twitter’s Tip Jar feature lets you give money to the people and organizations you follow online (or sometimes even to people you don’t). This isn’t about buying Tweets or changing that dynamic: it’s a simple way of saying, “thank you for being awesome.”

Notably, the only way to access Tip Jar right now is through navigating to a user’s profile. That means sending someone some money for a truly fantastic tweet will still take a bit more effort than, say, just liking or retweeting it.
How to Setup Your Twitter Tip Jar
Open your twitter profile > tap on edit profile > scroll down and toggle on the jar option and add your selected account details.
