The addition of Ethereum comes after the San Francisco-based company launched Bitcoin tipping in late September.
Twitter’s “tip jar” feature, which allows users to monetize their followers, was originally introduced in early May.
The users of Twitter Blue, the website’s premium service, were allowed to display their precious non-fungible tokens as profile pictures at the end of January. As reported by U.Today, OnlyFans, the adult-focused content subscription platform, followed Twitter’s lead earlier this week, allowing creators to show off their NFTs.
Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, who is known as one of Bitcoin’s most influential proponents, has publicly opposed support for Ethereum, often arguing with his community.
As reported by U.Today, in late November, the billionaire handed over the reins to ex-CTO Parag Agrawal, who appears to be more open-minded about alternative cryptocurrencies than his predecessor.
