Dwolla announced a new feature today called Dwolla Pound that lets you send payments to friends by simply tweeting.
“This makes it easy to send money to friends, nonprofits or even merchants without having to login to the Dwolla mobile app,” the company says in a blog post.
A couple weeks ago, they launched guest payments, enabling users to pay without having an account. You will, however, need an account to pay by tweeting.
You can connect your Twitter account to your Dwolla account here, then simply tweet something like:
You only need to include the recipient’s Twitter handle, $ amont, and #dwolla.
“Yep, it’s really that simple,” the company says.
Pretty cool. No wonder the actor portraying Steve Jobs invested in the company.
