Twitter Expands Testing for NFT Profile Pictures

NFTs have changed the way that people look at digital art as well as digital media in general. Through the use of NFTs it has now finally become possible for someone or the other to prove that they are the original owners of a particular piece of media. While NFTs have been criticized for a wide range of reasons, this does not change the fact that they are becoming really popular and many people want to be able to show their NFTs off.

Twitter seems to be well aware of this since it is testing out a separate NFT profile picture because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up allowing people to incorporate their NFTs into their social media profiles. This feature is currently in the testing phase, but Twitter has expanded testing which makes it seem like we may start to see this feature pretty close in the future which some may find exciting.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Twitter is now sending out prompts to certain users that are informing them about NFT profile pictures. These pictures are going to be hexagonal as opposed to the circular profile pictures that regular internet users would be capable of showing to anyone, and they will also have a direct link to the blockchain proof of ownership that makes the NFT valuable in the first place.

An essential aspect of this feature is ensuring that only the NFT owner can show said picture, something that would most definitely make this update worthwhile with all things having been considered and taken into account. Making yourself appear unique on the internet has also been rather difficult because of how easy it is to copy media, but NFTs and the enforcement of their ownership might change that and allow people to forge unique identities online.
