A day after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey resigned, famed tech blogger Jane Machun Wong cracked a way to add Ethereum to Twitter's Tip Jar feature that is rolling out now. The development is interesting because Dorsey, who has been a major Bitcoin supporter, has refused to invest in Ethereum on multiple occasions.
She further added a wallet address for people to tips on it.

Wong's advanced tech skills left crypto enthusiasts excited with some saying Dorsey's departure may be a start of a pro-Ethereum approach at the company.

While the tweak feature is not expected to be visible or available for everybody for now, advanced engineers can follow Wong's footsteps into adding Ethereum tips to the Tip Jar feature on their own.
For now, Twitter is looking into the matter and will respond to it later, a report by Decrypt said.
Twitter has been taking steps to drive crypto adoption via its platform which is used by millions of people worldwide.
Recently, it announced the addition of a new tab to let people showcase their non-fungible token (NFT) holdings on the platform.
Fifteen years after having founded Twitter, Dorsey bid adieu to his CEO chair on November 29.
