STEP 3 – Start tipping
When you find a post that you like simply reply to that post (user). Use this format to send a tip: + @xrptipbot e.g. type +0.123456 @xrptipbot to send 0.123456 XRP to the user you reply to (Twitter / Discord*).
If your tweet is not a reply, the tip goes to the twitter user first mentioned in your tweet except if that’s you yourself or @xrptipbot. Also note that retweets don’t trigger tips.
What if you want to send multiple tips all at once? This would be the syntax then:
[User Mention] [+amount] [XRP Tip Bot mention] e.g.:
@WietseWind +2 @xrptipbot
@RobertLe88 +1 @xrptipbot
This is a very cool way to spread the love ❤ to multiple Twitter users in one tweet!
