Popular microblogging site Twitter is adding NFTs as one of several ways to customize your Twitter profile, Now, you can show off the NFTs you own in a hex-shaped profile picture on your Twitter account.
Update: Twitter has announced the rollout of NFT profile pictures to all users on the platform.
“Setting up an NFT profile picture means people can associate your Twitter account with your connected wallet’s public crypto wallet address. 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.” Twitter said in a statement.

Twitter NFT profile pictures will support NFTs from Argent, Coinbase Wallet, Ledger Live, MetaMask, Rainbow and Trust Wallet
The feature is currently available to Twitter Blue users on iOS. Twitter blue is the company’s $2.99-a-month subscription service, which offers a streamlined user experience and an “undo” button, among other mostly cosmetic features.
How does connecting my wallet to Twitter work?
To set up an NFT Profile Picture, you must control the address that holds the NFT you’d like to select as your profile picture.
When you connect your supported crypto wallet to Twitter, Twitter will generate a verification request message to your wallet address, where you’ll be asked to complete a signing request which will include your Twitter handle.
You can only connect one crypto wallet to your Twitter account at a time.
