Twitter Expands Tweet Tiles Trial to NFT
Social media giant Twitter is expanding its Tweet Tiles trial to NFT. Recall that earlier this project was tested with major media such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Guardian. Choice of NFT marketplaces was chosen because of the functionality that allows tweets to display an interactive customizable widget.
What are Tweet Tiles?
Tweet Tiles allow developers to extend and improve the Twitter user experience, as “the ability to embed NFTs, along with relevant information and a direct link to the marketplace, will drive sales and support the discovery of new and popular collections. The Tweet Tiles pilot project is currently running on iOS and web for the five featured NFT marketplaces,” the company said in a statement.
Twitter’s decision to expand its Tweet Tiles pilot to NFT marketplaces follows the introduction of NFT avatars for users who connect their web wallet to verify ownership.said GuardianLink, the organization behind the digital product.
Where does Tweet Tiles work?
The trading platforms OpenSea, Rarible, Magic Eden, Dapper Labs and Jump.trade of GuardianLink were chosen for the pilot project. Blockchain and NFT solution provider GuardianLink says in a statement
As a result, select partners will be able to display color NFTs directly in tweets for the first time. The format allows the larger picture of NFT to be displayed along with metadata such as title and creator.
What are the prospects for the development of Tweet Tiles?
If the pilot proves successful, it could be rolled out to all Twitter users, providing NFT collectors with a new way to share their digital collectibles. Thus, the global social media giant signifies the massive introduction of NFTs into the user world.
