We have thousands of people paying each other with one Tweet.
To do this our members just Tweet…
“Pay @friend $X for reason”
Pay @Schiefgelaufen $349 for Coachella tickets!

We’ve heard your feedback: You wanted an easier, and more private, way to pay friends. So, today we’ve released an update that allows you to pay a friend by mentioning them directly. This way, the payment won’t fill up your followers timelines.
To pay a friend, you now just have to Tweet…
“@friend $X for reason”
@todgru $2 for building the new DP feature.

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.
