If you are a thought leader, content creator, coach or influencer, you need to check out the Twitter Tip Jar feature.

There's something so personal about the interaction; it feels like we're having a conversation, not just reading an article.
As of today, there is an easy way to show appreciation for these influencers on their platform without having to leave Twitter!
AND if YOU post engaging, valuable, "share worthy" content this is your opportunity to create an additional revenue stream!
Introducing the "Twitter TIP JAR!"
This new feature will allow users to tip their favorite influencers with $$ at any time they want.
If you're a Twitter user and an influencer, chances are you have seen the hashtag #tipjar. Well, it's not just for your favorite barista or waiter.
Several popular online personalities such as Gary Vee (@garyvee) and John Lee Dumas (@johnleedumas) are starting to earn tips from their followers... AND you can too!

A Few kinks and Privacy Issues Twitter Still Needs Work Out
It's easy to see the benefits of the new Twitter Tip Jar feature on Twitter. You can now send money for free with a simple tweet. Which is great if you're in need of some quick cash and don't have any other options readily available.
However, there are already some privacy issues that Twitter will have to work out for the "Tip Jar"
As spotted by Rachel Tobac, sending tips through Paypal using Tip Jar currently allows whoever is sending the money (the tipper to see the recipient’s address. Understandably, this is definitely a BIG security issue. Hopefully, Twitter and Paypal will resolve it very soon.
Huge heads up on PayPal Twitter Tip Jar. If you send a person a tip using PayPal, when the receiver opens up the receipt from the tip you sent, they get your *address*. Just tested to confirm by tipping @yashar on Twitter w/ PayPal and he did in fact get my address I tipped him. https://t.co/R4NvaXRdlZ pic.twitter.com/r8UyJpNCxu— Rachel Tobac (@RachelTobac) May 6, 2021
In an update later Thursday, May 6th, Twitter's support account tweeted: “updating our tipping prompt and Help Center to make it clearer that other apps may share info between people sending/receiving tips, per their terms."
Twitter acknowledged this problem and promised more updates were coming as they "continue working closely" with PayPal on these concerns."
