The social media giant, Twitter, has announced that it is working with four NFT marketplaces to enable users to display, buy, and sell NFTs via their tweets. The integration has been named “NFT Tweet Tiles.” It would place NFTs in a different panel in a tweet and it would have a button that would direct users to the marketplace listing.
Running a test phase
The integration is still being tested. But it functions with four marketplaces that partnered with Twitter to run it. They are Dapper Labs, the Flow blockchain developers; Rarible; Magic Eden; and Jump.trade.
These marketplaces in the test have operations spanning different networks. Their operations cover Immutable X, Flow, Solana, Tezos, Ethereum, and Polygon.
For now, the Twitter test accepts only Ethereum NFTs. Note that it enabled the use of NFTs as profile pictures on Twitter Blue in January.
The NFT profile pictures are available to just subscribers on Twitter Blue using iOS. It came in an early subscription mode. Web and Android users later got support for the NFT product on the platform.
Adopting NFTs on Twitter
Nevertheless, Twitter has promised that irrespective of the platforms they use, everyone on Twitter would be able to view the new Hexa-shaped profiles. But only iOS users can choose NFTs as their profile pictures now.
NFT profile picture adoption was limited to early markets. The social media company had suggested that it plans to fully adopt NFTs. It has now become a topic widely discussed on the platform.
Among the many updates available last month, Twitter provided a glimpse into its NFT intents. It boasted about how a new means of authentication would help creators display their works more efficiently. And went further to say it was working on ways to let them showcase collections altogether.
Twitter has desired to integrate decentralized solutions for a long time. It led to the release of such features that could support Bitcoin.
