Twitter opens tips for everyone and accepts Bitcoin | Digital Trends Spanish

Twitter has announced a series of changes and news that will be coming to the platform, starting with the tipping system that will be available to users around the world from today.

These tips were already available for a while, but limited only to the United States. Now, people around the world will be able to do it from the iOS application, while in Android it will be added “soon”, according to the social network.

An important detail of the tips is that in addition to traditional payments with credit cards, Twitter will begin to accept Bitcoin, through the Strike platform. With this, the company wants to offer more flexibility for money movements, both for those who pay and for content creators.

It seems that content creators are precisely an important focus for Twitter and several of the news point in that direction. Super Follows are slowly expanding in the United States and Canada, while Spaces will have a support program offering technical, financial and marketing support to creators.

In addition to the above, Spaces will also change the way content is consumed. Currently, audio conversations can only be heard in real time, but in the future, the option to record conversations and listen to them later will be added.

Safer interactions

Twitter has been implementing several improvements in the pursuit of user safety in recent time and apparently these have paid off; According to the data they provided, reports of abuse have been reduced by 40 percent since the function of limiting who can respond to a tweet was added.

In the future, other measures aimed at security will allow users to remove themselves from conversations they do not want to be a part of. You can also properly identify the type of account with which you interact, to know if they are people or automated accounts.

And in relation to Communities that were recently announced, a feature is being developed that will allow users to know what the environment is within a community, before entering it.

The goal of large-scale Twitter is to make the platform more attractive to everyone, whether they are users or content creators. As always happens, time will tell if the new features are effective or if they end up missing like the Fleets.
