New web app uses Chirpify to sync your Twitter and PayPal accounts and let you send $5 for a drink.

Web app Tweet-a-Beer lets you buy a drink for your Twitter friends, using ecommerce platform Chirpify to sync your Twitter account with your PayPal account. This development in the payment ecosystem means you can send money in $5 allotments to share a pint with another Twitter user.

The online networking app was developed by agencies tenfour and Waggener Edstrom from Portland, Oregon. It allows you to personalize your beer gift with a message, which is posted for your followers to read on Twitter, and you can also choose to add a venue near your current location and a date when you'd like to meet up for a drink. Reggie Wideman from digital agency tenfour told Mashable:
