twitter coins

Twitter is reportedly working on an in-app currency feature “coins” to help creators earn money from the platform.

This new feature was spotted by two app researchers, Jane Manchun Wong. Their posts indicate that coins appear to be an extension of Twitter’s existing tipping feature. Jane Manchum Wong’s screenshot states that “Coins allow you to support creators who Tweet great content.”

Wong also spotted an “Awards” feature, which allows people to use coins to buy in-app gifts for others just like on Tiktok.

According to Wong’s image shared, users would be able to buy gifts for as little as one coin (called “Mind Blown”) or as much as 5000 (called “Gold”). It’s not clear how much coins will cost, though Twitter would presumably get a cut of revenue generated from coin purchases.

It is also not clear when this feature would be launched.
