Twitter takes first steps toward becoming a content platform by allowing journalists, creators and others to receive tips from their followers
Twitter announced the Tip Jar, a new way for members to earn money on Twitter. The program is said to be the first of several methods Twitter will help users earn money on their platform. Twitter makes no money off the tips.
The announcement frames the Tip Jar as a way for members to show support and appreciation but not as a way to earn a living.
