This is what missing SXSW gets you, catching on to new innovations LATE! I’m still excited to find out about Chirpify and their twitter payment system. What happens is that each person makes a Chirpify account (very similar to paypal). And you tweet “Send @person’sname $5 for reason” and chirpify recognizes this as a purchase. Once you’ve authorized Chirpify to send and receive future payments for you it’s instant!
The main exchanges they detail on their website are Fundraising, Businesses accepting payments and Musicians selling music. The most talked about application that has integrated Chirpify’s API is “Tweet-a-Beer” by the Tenfour agency (Portland). Below is a video detailing their successful launch during SXSW 2012. This makes me wonder what types of campaigns I can create using Chirpify. . .
