Accept Tips on Twitter Using Paytm Payment Gateway – Here’s How

Twitter Tips

When it comes to gauging the benefits of technology, nothing comes close to how social media has changed our lives. The very way we do things has changed such as consuming news, communicating with friends (and strangers), portraying ourselves, and earning a living.

We have all been listening to the cliche of how the internet has democratised the world and now everyone has the equal opportunity and freedom to earn money by just following their passion. But only recently, we have started to see what it actually means.

Social media has given the power to everyone who is willing to put in some effort and create engaging content to start earning money right from the comfort of their homes.

People have long been posting unique content like memes and their hot-takes on everything and anything on Twitter to gain followers. Now, Twitter is giving them an opportunity to accept money from their followers.
