A Week Tipping on Twitter
March 18, 2015
I've been tipping bitcoin on Twitter for the past 6 days and apparently someone I tipped used the bitcoin I sent them to buy coffee for a homeless woman. Check out ChangeCup for a write up on what this NYC person is doing with micropayments.
Tuesday I sent out a tweet saying I'd give out free tacos for anyone that wanted me to send them bitcoins over Twitter via ChangeTip. The ChangeCup twitter account responded saying they'd buy coffee for a homeless person with the bitcoin I tipped them. ChangeCup confirmed the purchase with an @reply a few hours later.
Here's a picture of the homeless woman this twitter account took to confirm the transaction.
Priscilla came to NYC from Clearwater, Florida where it's illegal to be homeless. She's been here since Thanksgiving.
