An Easier Way to Donate to ProPublica: Via Twitter

Help support journalism in the public interest.

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, and there are two ways to do it.

1. Send us a direct donation by tweeting "Donate $15 to @ProPublica to help support journalism in the public interest." You choose how much to give. (If you want to contribute $1000 to support journalism in the public interest, that’s cool with us.)

2. Keep an eye out for a tweet from us that says "Help support journalism in the public interest. Reply "donate" to give $AMOUNT via @Chirpify." Reply "donate," and you’ll automatically wire us whatever the set dollar amount is.

Either way, 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!
