What’s new? The social network Twitter has announced a new feature called NFT Tweet Tiles, which will allow users to buy, sell and display non-fungible tokens directly through tweets. As part of the project, the company has partnered with four NFT marketplaces, Magic Eden, Rarible, Dapper Labs and Jump.trade.

More details about the project. Collectively, the partner marketplaces cover several blockchains, including Ethereum, Solana, Flow, Polygon, Tezos, and Immutable X. A Twitter spokesperson told Decrypt that the new feature is blockchain-agnostic, so all networks are supported as long as the links are from the partnered platforms. The company added that Tweet Tiles is currently “being tested with select Twitter users across iOS and web.” A spokesperson for the social network also noted that no paid Twitter Blue subscription is required to use the feature.

According to the Financial Times, the deal to buy the social network by Elon Musk took place on October 28, with a total of $44 billion paid by the businessman. He assured that Twitter will now have “absolute freedom” of speech.

Earlier, researcher Jane Manchun Wong reported that Twitter is developing its own crypto wallet, with no other details or confirmation from the company itself yet.

Under the eighth package of EU sanctions, the Dapper marketplace restricted the accounts of Russians, leaving the possibility to withdraw assets to the Blocto wallet.
