Some people saw my recent tweet and asked me what it meant
There are two things to going on here.
First, Cambridge-based TipJoy has developed a super easy, lightweight to send mobile payments on Twitter. Simply enter the following into Twitter:
“pay $x @twitterusername”
And that’s it. You will have sent the other Twitter user a payment.
I’ve started doing a few Twitter polls and trivia. Maybe I’ll start using TipJoy for the various winners of my fun trivia tweets. Classifieds on Twitter also seem like a natural.
Another way people are using Tipjoy is for a good cause. That’s the second thing going with my above tweet. @wellwishes was started by Laura Fitton. She is asking fellow Twitter users to contribute for a very good cause – clean water for children. Read the full post here.
