Users to buy and sell NFTs through tweets

Twitter, a social media network, today declared cooperation 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 own panel within a tweet and adds a button that directs readers to a listing on a marketplace.

Currently, the integration—which is still under testing—works with four distinct partners’ marketplaces: Magic Eden, a platform-neutral NFT marketplace protocol, Rarible, Dapper Labs, the company that developed 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, thus all networks are supported as long as the links are from a marketplace partner, a Twitter spokesman noted in a comment.

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.
