Twitter Launches NFT Avatars For iOS
Social networking website Twitter has launched the ability to add NFTs as profile avatars for iOS users with a premium Twitter Blue subscription.
According to the website, in order to enable the new feature, Twitter Blue users will need to connect their Ethereum wallets. In the future, it is possible to connect other blockchains.
When changing the profile picture, you must select “NFT”, then connect the wallet and select one of the available non-fungible tokens.
Avatars verified in this way have a special hexagonal shape that is displayed on all platforms. Avatars of non-NFT verified users will remain in the classic circle frame.
Support for Coinbase Wallet, MetaMask, Rainbow, Argent, Trust and Ledger Live wallets is currently available.
The company announced its plans to add the ability to install NFT as profile avatars on Twitter back in September 2021. However, when the feature will become available to all Twitter users is not yet known.
