The alternative payment provider Dwolla now gives users the ability to send money via tweet by using the hashtag #dwolla.

Hashtags, which are words preceded by the # sign, typically allow Twitter users to easily search for other tweets using the same words. Dwolla's new system instead allows its hashtag, when typed with a dollar amount and a recipient's Twitter username, to be used to initiate person-to-person payments.
