Transfers will be carried out using the Lighting Network (which allows you to send bitcoins faster and cheaper). To send and receive cryptocurrency, users of social networks need to connect a Lighting wallet or bind a bitcoin address.
To send a donation, you need to click on the icon that appeared next to the “Read” button. After that, you can select the service for sending the transfer. This option is only available to adult users. Twitter will not charge any fees for transfers.
