One of the social media platform giants, Twitter has officially integrated a non-fungible token (NFT) profile-image verification to its platform.
According to Twitter, users have to pay $2.99 per month through its Blue subscription service and use an IOS device to use the new feature.
Additionally, users can link their Ethereum-based wallets to their accounts and show off their NFTs as their profile pictures.
These wallets include LedgerLive, Coinbase Wallet, MetaMask, Trust Wallet, Rainbow. Not that profiles with hexagon-shaped images got their NFTs verified with Twitter.
On top of that, Twitter wrote on its website, saying that setting up an NFT profile picture means people can associate your Twitter account with your connected wallet’s public crypto wallet address.
As a result, it means that your Twitter account will be linked to your current and crypto wallet transactions history and holdings, including all other NFTs in that wallet because this data is all available on the public blockchain.
The move is Twitter’s first official step into the NFT space. However, the company plunged into the cryptocurrency back in September, revealing that users can tip each other using bitcoin, the largest crypto via the Lightning Network.
The news comes on the same day as Meta's plans to let users create NFTs.
