Twitter wants to launch NFT features on its platform, and it has already given a preview of what that might look like.
Twitter is already working on its NFT feature
Social media giant Twitter is reportedly working on its NFT feature. This is according to a company executive who gave a sneak peek into what the NFT feature would look like on the social media platform.
Mada Aflak, a senior software engineer at Twitter, shared a video on Twitter, showcasing the feature that allows the social media app users to add NFTs to their accounts. The feature allows users to edit their profiles, connect to a crypto wallet, and import their OpenSea NFT collection. After doing that, the users can select their avatar from the OpenSea collection of NFT artworks.

The profile picture will come with a badge, indicating that the image is genuine. Thus, allowing users to flaunt their expensive NFT art (CryptoPunk, Bored Ape, or any other NFT art available on OpenSea).
The developer said Twitter is currently testing the feature and has asked users to submit feedback and suggestions to make it better.
Twitter launched a Bitcoin tipping feature
This latest development comes just a week after Twitter launched its Bitcoin tipping service. At the time, Twitter said Bitcoin tips would be processed through Strike, a Bitcoin wallet app that runs on the Lightning Network protocol. Lightning is designed to enable faster and cheaper transactions with Bitcoin.
The social media giant also announced the testing of its NFT feature during its presentation of the Bitcoin tipping service.
