Twitter has launched its long-awaited NFT profile picture feature for Twitter Blue followers. This feature allows users to link their NFT collection to their Twitter profile and get a hexagonal shaped NFT profile picture as proof of authenticity.
Redesigned profile customization
Earlier today, Twitter announcement the launch of its NFT profile picture feature for Twitter Blue users, a paid subscription that offers some exclusive features. Users will connect their crypto wallets to Twitter, which will then verify the NFTs the user owns.
NFT profile images will be recognizable by their distinctive hexagonal shape, as opposed to the circles used for standard images.
For now, the feature only supports Ethereum NFTs and only iOS users can use it. However, the Hexagon shaped NFT profile pictures will be displayed as such on all platforms.
Crypto Twitter takes shape
Today’s launch is part of Twitter’s broader strategy of integrating blockchain technology into its business model. Last November, Twitter form a cryptography team focused on integrating Web3 applications.
That was before Jack Dorsey announcement his resignation from Twitter later that month. Since then, it has made several distinct moves in the crypto space. He has first amended the name of its other massive business, payments provider Square, to Block. He also continued his support for the Bitcoin ecosystem when he announced his non-profit Bitcoin Legal Defense Fund earlier this month.
