White Hat Hacker Discovers Twitter Will Soon Integrate ETH to ‘Tip Jar’

A white hat hacker – otherwise known as an ‘ethical’ hacker – has revealed that Twitter will soon integrate Ether (ETH) to the Tip Jar.

The hacker in question is Hong Kong-based Jane Manchun Wong, who discovered that users can receive tips in the form of ETH while not being included on the app.

The tipping function was rolled out in September, allowing Bitcoin tips via the Lightning Network. But it seems Wong managed to find a way to add the ETH address option in the Tip Jar by tweaking the Twitter interface to add Ethereum wallets. There was a user who had managed the feat first when the tipping function went live.

Note that the ETH address option is not available, but this suggests Twitter will soon integrate the option to allow users to receive tips in the form of Ether.


Not the First Time Wong Has Beaten Twitter to the Punch

Wong has previously discovered hidden functions on the social media platform. In early November, she managed to connect her ETH wallet to Twitter and set her Twitter NFT Avatar. Twitter soon blocked her access to the NFT Avatars feature.
