Tweet Tiles for NFTs on Twitter
On October 28, Twitter announced that it has started testing a new way to display NFT art in tweets and users can now see expanded NFT links.
A tweet from the Twitter Dev account revealed today that the social media platform will use a feature called Tweet Tiles in order to enhance links to certain NFT marketplaces.
With the introduction of this new feature, users will be able to include a link to an NFT on an external site. The link will automatically expand to show a full-size image of the NFT, in addition to metadata and a link to its location on its particular marketplace.
Marketplaces like Rarible, Magic Eden, Dapper Labs, and Jump. trade supported the trial.
Among those marketplaces, Rarible is the most significant, with $432,000 of NFTs traded throughout the last week. Rarible recognized the feature, commenting that Tweet Tiles will permit users to “experience NFTs in a whole new way.”
Magic Eden also mentioned the feature, writing: “Loving the TweetTile…some might even say it’s fire.” Jump.trade, finally, called the feature “a lovely and welcome boost for NFTs [and] a major milestone for web3.”
In August, Twitter tested the Tweet Tiles feature with three top news publications such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and The Guardian. Around then, the feature was utilized to increase news articles, not NFT-related posts.
Twitter’s developer account said that the recently added feature is “one more step in our journey to let developers impact the Tweet experience.”
The organization has step-by-step added support for NFT throughout the last year. In June 2021, it delivered a bunch of free NFTs. This January, it added support for NFTs in display pictures.
Twitter is incorporating digital currency as well. In September 2021, the site presented crypto tipping, and this week, tales arose that it is building a crypto wallet.
On October 28, Elon Musk also acquired Twitter, though it is not clear whether he plans to follow through on his earliest crypto plans such as Dogecoin integration and micropayments.
