Twitter Blue iOS users can now use NFT Profile Photos to flex their NFTs. Soon, this feature will be available to Android and Web users. This feature is available in the U.S.A., Canada and Australia.
Moving Longer is Coming
Twitter has been hinting at this for a while. Many people in the “Crypto Twitter” space have already changed their profile pictures to an NFT. TechCrunch was told by a Twitter spokesperson:
Twitter is where people talk about what they care about and where many people have their first encounter with NFTs and crypto. NFTs are being used by many people as a means of self-expression and identity, as well as to participate in the growing community and active discussion on Twitter.
This allowed people to right-click on the NFT picture and save it to gain unearned social capital. Others could also impersonate well-known influencers by simply rehashing their NFT photo. Twitter now allows users to prove they own a CryptoPunk or BAYC with this new feature. ZDNet was informed by Twitter:
“A lot of people first interact with crypto on Twitter, so we want it to be easier for them to interact directly with the community, take part in the lively NFT conversation and jump into the world digital assets directly on Twitter. Enter NFT Profile Pictures. The crypto community is concerned about authenticity around NFT ownership. With NFT Profile Pictures, people can prove ownership of their NFTs. We also support artists who make this art.
What can you do with this feature?
Users will be required to update their profile pictures as usual. They will be able to choose an NFT during the change. Connecting their supported cryptocurrency wallet to their Twitter Blue account is required. Argent, Coinbase Wallet and MetaMask are supported wallets. Rainbow, Trust Wallet is not. Other Twitter users can view information about the artist and their collection. They can also see transaction history and whether or not the NFT has been verified by an OpenSea third-party marketplace. Twitter states that only ERC-721 tokens and ERC-1155 tokens are supported at the moment.
