Twitter is not the only social media site that is attempting to monetize its app and assist creators in making a living. There are some others as well, such as TikTok. Last month, it is also working on developing a new in-app tipping tool on its website that will enable creators to make money from followers outside of TikTok LIVE streams, where giving is currently possible. The function is now part of a restricted test and is not yet generally available, according to the business.
