“Nowadays, people are using NFTs as a form of identity and self-expression, and as a gateway into the thriving community and increasingly active conversation on Twitter.”
According to Twitter, the new feature provides a seamless, user-friendly way for people on Twitter to verify their NFT ownership by allowing them to directly connect their crypto wallets to Twitter and select an NFT from their collection as their new profile picture.
To differentiate from other profile pictures, NFT owners will have profiles that are shaped as hexagons to authenticate that they are the actual owners.
With each NFT linked to its blockchain, only the actual owner of an image can display it in the new hexagonal profile image format.
Profile visitors will be able to view more information about each NFT by tapping on it, taking them through to a listing of both the owner and creator, as listed on the chain.
Twitter hasn’t provided any details on a full roll-out or test but it looks to be coming soon.
