Once you’ve inputted at least one payment service, that’s it! One point to note is that you’ll need to enter your username for the third-party payment service you choose, and Twitter has highlighted that your username for the service will be linked publicly to your Twitter account – so make sure you’re happy for your followers to see any usernames used.
