Because Twitpay uses Twitter’s Search API to find payments, we haven’t been able to support users with protected updates. Lately, we’ve also been seeing a lot of people who don’t show up in search results, for varying reasons.
Tonight we added support for both types of users. Just make sure to use “@twitpay” somewhere in your tweet. Also make sure that Twitpay is allowed to follow you, if your updates are protected.
- @ev @twitpay $5 because Twitter rocks
- twitpay @ev $5 because I love Twitter so much // @twitpay
- Helping fight Animal Cruelty (@twitpay @HumaneSociety $10)
In other words, use Twitpay like you normally would, but toss in at least one “@twitpay” to make sure it shows up as a Mention.
Just a small step in making sure Twitpay works for everyone.
PS: if you’re waiting for the exciting news…this isn’t it. Not much longer!
