What a Strike!! “It’s what’s happening.”
Twitter’s iOS users can now use the ‘tip with bitcoin’ feature. Yes, connecting third-party apps is now enabled for Twitter’s iOS users, courtesy of the Strike app. To your delight, the function would enable connecting Bitcoin and Lightning Network addresses. Twitter won’t charge any fee for using the new “Tips” feature. If or not the fresh feature would be added to Twitter’s web version is yet to be seen.
By simply visiting the Twitter profile page, clicking the “edit profile” icon and turning on “tips” would allow accessing the tipping feature. Users can press the dollar icon button to send money to accounts via Cash App, GoFundMe, Bandcamp, Patreon, etc.
Twitter, Inc. tweeted the following:

MSN reports Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey owns a “financial stake in Lightning after providing $2.5 million in seed investing in Lightning Labs in 2018.”
