SendCrypto bot – send crypto tips and payments on Twitter
The SendCrypto bot now works on Twitter.
To use it, post a Tweet mentioning @SendCrypto along with the amount and currency you want to send, for example:
@sendcrypto @elonmusk $5
@sendcrypto @elonmusk $5 ETH
@sendcrypto @elonmusk 0.5 ETH
@sendcrypto @elonmusk 20 REQ
If you are replying to a Tweet you can omit the recipient and the transfer will go to the author of the Tweet you are replying to:
The user experience on Twitter is a little different from Reddit and Slack, as Twitter does not allow the bot to send a DM to people who have not already had some kind of interaction with it. This throws a spanner in the works because the bot needs to DM the recipient to ask for their address before it can complete the transfer.
To get around this the bot posts a Tweet mentioning both the sender and the recipient, with a link for the recipient to start a DM and set their address. It is not perfect but I think it is the best alternative given Twitter's (totally understandable) restrictions.
