Twitter drops support for NFT profile pictures

Monkey NFT

X (formerly Twitter) has finally dropped support for NFT profile pictures.

A while pic, Twitter developed a feature which would allow users to place NFT images as their profile picture. Those doing so would get a specially shaped border and other Twitter users could click the NFT to see details about it.

However it seems users aren’t as interested in randomly generated monkeys as they were two years ago and the feature has allegedly been removed from the site. All references to NFT profile pictures have also been removed from the X Premium support page.

NFTs or “Non-Fungible Tokens” are basically digital images that you can download for free, but if you spend money you get a blockchain token that says you technically own it. Last year, SEGA COO Shuji Utsumi called NFTs and associated technologies “boring”.
