Twitter also launched non-fungible token (NFT) verification for paid Twitter Blue subscribers last month. The addition of ETH wallet support marks Twitter's entry into non-Bitcoin crypto features like NFT profile pictures. It is worth noting that the ETH tips feature is only available on mobile. Twitter ETH wallet does not support ENS domain names like long alphanumeric ones.
The company has confirmed that Tipping with ETH and ERC-20 tokens (including Ethereum-based stablecoins) will be supported. When you send an ETH tip, you are not tipping via Twitter. After you click on the ETH tip option on Twitter, you will be navigated to your crypto wallet, and then you will be able to send a tip in the form of Ethereum.
