Campaign for DOGE tipping on Twitter

Earlier this week, U.Today reported that DOGE cofounder Billy Markus shared an idea on Twitter on “pestering” the team of the social media giant with the #DogeTwitterTipJar hashtag. The goal is to get Twitter to introduce tipping in Dogecoin after they had enabled users to tip their favorite content makers in Ethereum.

A Bitcoin tipping feature was rolled out in September 2021. Now, Billy Markus is urging the community to sign a petition to get Twitter to launch tipping in the “OG cryptocurrency” DOGE.
