This could be huge.
Exposing a whole lot of people to BTC and incentivizing wallet adoption.

I don't know. Isn't Obama still a person who can receive personal donations?
I would think only party donations can't be anonymous.

I think it's illegal for him to accept anonymous campaign donations - or any money that might be construed as such.

But since he's unlikely to ever run for anything again, it's probably OK.

I think I'll twit some BTC to Neil deGrasse Tyson...

So he would be required by law to make a Bitcoin transaction returning them? Interesting for sure, lol.

So anyone who looks at his twitter stream can see the BTC tip and maybe decide to check it out?

Yes.  I'm told his twitter stream has a few watchers...
