Twitpay Secures Seed

AtlantTech reported today that Twitpay has raised an undisclosed round of funding.

Twitpay, the second Startup Weekend Atlanta company to secure seed captial (Skribit being the first), is a simple way to send payments via Twitter.  The service is powered on the backend by Amazon Payments. Twitpay went live two weeks ago.

Twitpay has been featured on CNN, The New York Times, and Time. Most recently Twitpay was listed as the second of 99 Essential Twitter Tools and Applications.

With all the media attention and a little money in the bank, founders Don Brown and Michael Ivey are now focused on gaining some traction.

Mr. Money Wings is happy. 

Disclosure:  I am Twitpay advisor and stockholder.
