“tip” feature of “Twitter”

American “Twitter” site

for tweets has launched a new feature called “tip jars”, which allows its users to send money to tweeters on the social network. According to “Twitter”, only a select group of people will benefit from the feature in the beginning, including creators, journalists, experts and non-profit organizations. The “tip jar” is mainly added as a small icon next to the profile of the tweeter who benefits from this feature, which is currently only available on smartphones, with different payment options such as PayPal and Venmo. The company says the feature is “an easy way to support the great sounds that make up the conversation,” as it puts it. But the feature was met with criticism, which is that it reveals the recipients’ personal information, such as their email addresses, as the PayPal service allows the recipient to know the mailing address of the tip sender
