Twitter philanthropists are a controversial emergence on the social media platform. In essence, Twitter-based philanthropy is about incredibly rich people helping out those who need it. The help is random, and often focused around performing a task like listening to a podcast or simply retweeting something. Of course, not everyone can “win” and many, many people miss out.
Unfortunately there is no shortage of people who could use some assistance. So it was probably inevitable that copycats and scams offering false hope would jump in, ready to leave victims worse off than when they started.
