Today, Twitter declared collaboration with four marketplaces to enable users to immediately purchase, sell, and display NFTs through tweets. The integration, known as NFT Tweet Tiles, places an NFT’s artwork in its panel within a tweet and adds a button that directs readers to a listing on a marketplace.
The integration, which is still in testing, presently functions with markets from four distinct partners: Magic Eden, a platform-agnostic NFT marketplace protocol, Rarible, Dapper Labs, developer of the Flow blockchain, and Jump.trade, a sports-focused marketplace.
These marketplaces collectively span numerous blockchain networks, including Tezos, Immutable X, Solana, Flow, Polygon, and Ethereum.
The feature is blockchain-agnostic, so all networks are supported as long as the links are from a marketplace partner, a Twitter spokesman confirmed to a news publishing company.
According to the representative, the “feature is currently being tested with select Twitter users across iOS and the web,” and if they are part of the test population, they will see the NFT Tweet Tile integration. It is not necessary to have a Twitter Blue premium subscription to use the function. Twitter only presently accepts Ethereum NFTs, but it previously enabled NFTs as verified profile images through its Twitter Blue membership service in January.
Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of Tesla, and Twitter were involved in a dispute that has been in the news for a time. Everything began on April 14 when Elon Musk revealed his intention to purchase Twitter for $54.20 per share. Twitter later approved the agreement on April 25; however, Musk intended to withdraw his support by July 8. In response, Twitter declared to sue Elon Musk, and a five-day trial was held in October to decide Twitter’s ownership. Then, just as it appeared that the deal was about to collapse, Musk finally acquired Twitter for the initial price stated.
Following the purchase, it is predicted that Musk would integrate Dogecoin on Twitter. The rumours are based on a leaked communication from March of this year between Elon Musk and Twitter about the integration of cryptocurrency and digital assets.
Musk is heard in the tape promoting the idea of a blockchain-based social media platform that would enable quick text messages, links, and payments akin to Twitter. People would have to pay a small charge to register their message in the chain, which Musk estimated to be roughly 0.1 Dogecoin. Additionally, the idea tries to completely get rid of spam and bots.
