Security expert Rachel Tobac pointed out this issue, and Twitter product lead Kayvon Beykpour clarified that the company cannot control how PayPal handles personal information. PayPal elaborated that the Twitter tip jar feature uses its “good and services” option that shares the shipping details of the sender and the receiver.

More people will have this feature on their profiles soon, but users are still concerned about its functionality. Journalists, for instance, are banned from receiving tips, so it is unclear how news organizations will treat this feature.
