Social media platform Twitter has announced that it will let users buy, sell and display NFTs directly through tweets in partnership with four marketplaces.
“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,” a tweet by Twitter Dev read.
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.
Collectively, those marketplaces span several blockchain networks, including Ethereum, Solana, Flow, Polygon, Tezos, and Immutable X.
“Thanks @elonmusk for making this happen Now drop a @MagicEden URL in your tweet, and watch the magic unfold #TweetTile @Twitter https://t.co/ar1wghtTMf,” a tweet by Magic Eden read.
A Twitter Blue premium subscription is not required to use the feature.
Twitter previously supported NFTs as verified profile pictures through its Twitter Blue subscription service in January, but it currently only supports Ethereum NFTs.
