“You can tip to show support, show appreciation, help out or reward anyone you want – from emerging creators and journalists to Twitter Spaces hosts and more.”

What is known about the service? Cryptocurrency rewards became available to users of the social network back in September 2021, when Bitcoin was added to the service. With the launch of Ethereum, the service may become even more popular.

The service will likely use Ethereum sidechains to avoid high fees on the network. The details on technical aspects are not yet available. As for connecting the service, it is done in a couple of clicks in the personal accounts and Twitter account settings.
