Twitter Will Allow Users to Buy and Sell NFTs Through Tweets
Social media platform Twitter today announced that it will let users buy, sell, and display NFTs directly through tweets in partnership with four marketplaces.
The integration, called NFT Tweet Tiles, displays the artwork of an NFT in a dedicated panel within a tweet, and includes a button to let users click through to a marketplace listing.
The integration—which is still in testing—currently works with marketplaces from four specific partners: Solana-centric marketplace Magic Eden, multi-platform NFT marketplace protocol Rarible, Flow blockchain creator Dapper Labs, and sports-centric platform Jump.trade.
Now testing: NFT Tweet Tiles 🚀Some links to NFTs on @rarible, @MagicEden, @dapperlabs and @Jumptradenft will now show you a larger picture of the NFT alongside details like the title and creator. One more step in our journey to let developers impact the Tweet experience. — Twitter Dev (@TwitterDev) October 27, 2022
Collectively, those marketplaces span several blockchain networks, including Ethereum, Solana, Flow, Polygon, Tezos, and Immutable X. Decrypt asked a Twitter representative for clarification on whether NFTs from all of those platforms are supported as part of this integration but did not immediately hear back.
Twitter previously supported NFTs as verified profile pictures through its Twitter Blue subscription service in January, but it currently only supports Ethereum NFTs.Source
