Social media users are swirling around rumors that Twitter is looking at introducing its own native asset called “Twitter Coin” to be used for payments and tipping on the platform.
Some are citing the initial reports from sources such as Nima Owji, who runs an app-focused information leak account on Twitter.
On Dec. 4, he posted a screenshot of what appears to be a prototype Twitter interface showing a “Coins” option for tipping, along with a vector image showing a coin bearing Twitter’s logo.

Others have pointed to tweets from tech researcher Jane Manchun Wong, who claimed to have extracted code from a specific version of Twitter’s web app to find the same information as Owji, though the post itself and Wong’s account have since been deleted for unknown reasons.
There has also been a swarm of posts under the TwitterCoin hashtag, with many people excited but ultimately unsurprised that the social media platform could be working on new payment rails and system integrations now that Elon Musk is at the helm.
New buzz circulating about a “Twitter Coin” and it has been trending. No doubt, twitter is hard at work in integrating a payment system of both fiat & crypto, and no doubt, for crypto, #TwitterPiPayment is the most viable option. Nothing better than Pi out there. Time will tell. pic.twitter.com/kTs3lS4Tk2
