What is Birds?

Bitcoin Birds is a simple Twitter client with Bitcoin integration. It is a service that allows you to get rewarded with bitcoins for retweeting and spreading other people’s messages, or reward others to retweet and spread yours!

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is the term for a network that allows a new form of monetary payment and medium of exchange. The currency is the first of its class as a decentralized peer-to-peer technology with no central point of issuance, which eliminates the need for trust in large organizations and governments. Bitcoin is also a currency, and allows you to send real time payments - immediately and with virtually no fees - to anybody, anywhere in the world.

Where can I get bitcoins?

You can purchase Bitcoin in a multitude of ways using fiat conversion to credit cards. It can be bought from online exchanges, online direct sellers, or in person. Click here to go to our buy bitcoins page. Most online exchanges keep wallets as a feature of their service, but it must be noted that holding money with a third party is not a recommended behavior here at Bitcoin.com. Always take the necessary precautions on your own by moving your wealth to your own destination and securing your own private keys. People can also meet in public to purchase Bitcoin in any amount. Whether it's a hard cash transaction or trade for a good, the currency can be traded with real people and in public.

Where do I keep my bitcoins?

You store your bitcoins in something called a Wallet, just like you’d carry your regular cash. You can find a list of wallets here, but please remember to treat your bitcoins like cash. Secure your Bitcoin wallet in the same way as you would secure your regular wallet if you kept that on your phone or your computer!

How do I use Birds?

There are two main functions in Birds:

  • Normal retweet
  • This works exactly the same as the retweet button on Twitter; click this button and you’ll retweet the message just as you would on twitter.com or using the Twitter app.

  • Bullhorn
  • This feature is unique to Birds. If you choose to use the Bullhorn, when a user retweets your message it will be cloned and then ‘announced’ (tweeted) to their followers. Instead of the message looking like a retweet it will appear as one of their direct tweets. This is a very good way of helping a topic trend on Twitter.

How is the amount of my reward determined?

The amount of bitcoins that you will receive for any given tweet will depend on how many Twitter followers you have, and the budget which the sponsor allocates. Generally speaking, the higher your number of followers on Twitter, the higher the Bitcoin reward you will receive for retweeting or announcing using the Bullhorn.

I’m seeing the message “Your reward is too small to be sent to the blockchain. Get more followers and try again” - what does this mean?

Sponsors set payouts per 100 Twitter followers. If you have less than 100 Twitter followers the reward for retweeting may be too low to be sent to the blockchain. This means that the transaction fees required for sending the transaction to the blockchain are higher than the reward you would receive for retweeting. If you gain more Twitter followers then the amount you would be rewarded for retweeting any given message will increase; once you reach a number of followers that will grant you a sufficient reward you will be able to retweet the message.

Are there fees?

Birds.bitcoin.com does not currently charge any fees, except for ‘dust’ change. When the amount left in an account is less than 100 bits/10,000 satoshis, we keep this change since the remaining amount of Bitcoin is simply too small to send out as a reward in the next transaction.

What is a Bitcoin address?

Think of it like an account number or email address. Any Bitcoins sent to your address will arrive at your Bitcoin wallet, assuming you have included a sufficient transaction fee. You can find many different choices for Bitcoin wallets at Bitcoin.com.

Do I have to be logged in to Birds to retweet and get paid?

Yes; the only tweets you can get paid for retweeting are the ones you see on the Birds homepage.

My sponsored tweet has disappeared from the Birds homepage, what happened?

Great news! The funds for your campaign have all been spent, meaning that your message has reached the maximum number of Twitter users, depending of course on the reward you set and the reach of each Twitter user. A sponsored tweet will only remain until all the funds have been sent to retweeters, or until you have manually removed it.
