To receive ETH tips, users must enable the tipping features and add an Ethereum address in the dedicated section of the profile. An attempt to add an ENS domain address instead of a full alpha numeric address was unsuccessful. This resulted in an error box that said punctuation was invalid.
Tips can be sent to Bitcoin Lightning Network. This sends payment via the Strike app. However, the company did not provide any additional information about tipping in ETH. Tips are currently only available to users with Android and iOS phones. Twitter claims that users retain 100% of tips they receive.
