I love it when a plan comes together. – John Hannibal Smith
Boom! The number of people you can flattr just blew up to… hundreds of millions – you can flattr any Twitter account. And pretty much everyone who’s anyone has a Twitter account these days so fire away.
How does it work?
1. Find their Twitter handle
2. Head over to our catalog page and look for the Flattr a Twitter panel on the sidebar.
3. Follow up a tweet, how else will they find out?!
If that person now claims their Flattr account your flattr will convert into real money at the end of the month like normally.
If they don’t claim your flattr then you don’t lose the money – the flattr stays in a pending state until they do claim their account, we then check if you still have money on your account and at the end of the month do the usual “split the cake equally” game and they get their bit.
It’s an experimental feature so please add any comments, questions, feeback into the comments. We’ll crush the bugs as we find them.
Let’s finish up strong with an epic Twitter Rap by a Flattr user Dan Bull.
