Looks like Twitter has rolled out Non-Fungible Token (NFT) profile pictures to all users on the platform.
The feature known as PFP was initially limited to iOS users who also had to be paid Twitter Blue users in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
Owners of NFTs have the bragging rights for a piece of digital art along with the blockchain entry attached to it. Twitter is now allowing them to display their NFTs on their profile picture.
Buying NFTs using cryptocurrency allows customers to support content creators and artists who put up their digital content for sale. They can then resell the NFT for a higher price.
‘The reason why I’m looking forward to the pfp feature is because if you really enjoy or like something, you want to show it off. The pfp is also your identity in this space, what you choose to use could say a lot about you or the community you’re part of and also with the hexagon, it’s a verification that you do own the NFT that you’re displaying,’ one Twitter user told Metro.co.uk.
NFT profile pictures will appear as hexagonal images and Twitter will allow users to click on them to examine several features of NFTs, such as the token ID, blockchain type, and collection to which it belongs.
In January, Twitter rolled out NFT profile pictures on iOS for its paid Twitter Blue users.
‘Setting up an NFT profile picture means people can associate your Twitter account with your connected wallet’s public crypto wallet address,’ said Twitter in a blog post announcing the feature.
This means your Twitter account will be associated with your current and historical crypto wallet transactions and holdings, including all other NFTs in that wallet, because this information is all available on the public blockchain.

According to a tutorial video, users could connect their wallet, including Coinbase Wallet, Rainbow, MetaMask, Trust Wallet, Argent, or Ledger Live, and set it as their profile picture.
In December 2021, OnlyFans, the online subscription platform known for adult content introduced NFT profile pictures. Reddit is also reportedly working on an NFT profile picture feature.
Now that the feature seems to have rolled out to everyone, users are already tweeting their new display pictures with the hashtag #NewNFTProfilePic.
For profile pictures that show up as a hexagon, you can just click to reveal the NFT data associated with the file.
