Twitter is constantly stepping up its game and rolling out new features. The latest is one that is actually quite beneficial to our beloved music scene and any other creatives out there. The Twitter “Tip Jar” feature gives users the ability to tip and donate money to others! We saw this and instantly thought, “Wow, this will be awesome for artists!”
Creatives can sync their Twitter Tip Jar to their Bandcamp, Patreon, CashApp, Venmo, and more!
While this is a service that is rolling out to everyone, as we mentioned, this is ideal for artists in our space. We all know the past year has taken a toll on the music scene and the lives of those who are a part of it. Luckily, Twitter identified platforms like Bandcamp and Patreon as payment options, along with the typical services like CashApp and Venmo. We have heard that PayPal is available, but with a big fee and it shares some of your information, like home address, to the person you tip.
Basically, as it continues to roll out, do your research on the most ideal Twitter Tip Jar option before kindly helping out your favorite creative—I’m sure we all want the money to go to them and not service charges!
And although live music is making a return, if you are looking for any more ways to support creatives aside from Twitter’s new Tip Jar feature, check here.
