Twitter has just added support for Ethereum addresses for its mobile donation service. The option has arrived a few months after the social network added the ability to send Bitcoin donations using the Lighting Network.

Now donations to Ethereum addresses are available to a wide range of users. However, unlike Bitcoins, the direct connection of wallets to the Ethereum network is not yet provided. To send a tip, users must manually copy the wallet address.

In January, Twitter added the ability to use NFTs as a profile photo. This feature is available to subscribers of Twitter’s premium service Blue with devices based on the iOS operating system. Now they can link their social media account to a cryptocurrency wallet and select NFTs to use as their profile photo.
