Now, there's an even easier way for you to donate to ProPublica: via Twitter.
Starting Wednesday, you'll be able to send donations via Chirpify, an e-commerce platform that allows you to buy, sell or donate over Twitter. It's sort of like wiring money. You simply write a tweet that includes our username (@ProPublica), the word donate and an amount. For example: "@ProPublica Donate $15."
You choose how much to give. (If you want to contribute $1000 to support journalism in the public interest, that's cool with us.) To participate, you need to register with Chirpify and link it to a PayPal account. The former draws from the latter to make your transactions secure. And the whole set-up takes less than 5 minutes.
Click here to sign up for a Chirpify account, and keep an eye out Wednesday for tweets announcing that our fundraiser is live.
This is an experiment, so we're curious — what do you think of donating via Twitter? Will you use it? Sound off in the comments.
Donations like yours help make our journalism possible. Thank you for your support!
