To highlight the strength of conversations, micro-blogging app Twitter on Tuesday launched a #TweetUp in partnership with Shared Studios — an organisation that connects people through videos.

#Tweetups are aimed at taking online conversation offline. It allows people to come together and have discussions on matters of shared interests with other people stationed in other parts of the world.

As part of its partnership, Shared Studios has organised #Tweetups in 40 locations across the globe including India, New York, Nairobi, Seoul, Sao Paulo, Los Angeles and London among others, the company said in statement.

Each location would have translators on hand to help with language barriers and also pair people up based on time zones.

Twitter is considering a feature that would allow users to tip one another – in Bitcoins though.

The Information reports that the micro-blogging platform is working on implementing a new payment feature to let people send money to each other.

It is not yet clear whether the Twitter tipping feature would integrate with Jack Dorsey’s other company, Square, which is a financial services, merchant services aggregator, and mobile payment company based in San Francisco.

Dorsey has made absolutely no secret of his love of Bitcoin over the years.

NewsBTC has reported on the Twitter CEO opining that Bitcoin will one day be the currency of the internet and his company Square integrating cryptocurrency payments.

“Dorsey has been a major investor in the Bitcoin micropayments solution Lightning Network,” said the report.

Dorsey will move to Africa for three-six months this year to “define the future”.

“Sad to be leaving the continent for now. Africa will define the future (especially the bitcoin one!). Not sure where yet, but I’ll be living here for 3-6 months mid-2020. Grateful I was able to experience a small part,” said the Twitter CEO.
