The new feature is only available to Twitter Blue subscribers on iOS. Still, everyone on Twitter will be able to view the hexa-shaped picture and see other details such as the owner, creator, and verification information from the NFT marketplace like Opensea or others.
The new feature supports crypto wallets, including Coinbase Wallet, Rainbow, MetaMask, Ledger Live, Argent, and Trust Wallet. However, only pictures in JEPG and PNG formats minted on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain, including ERC-721 and ERC-1155 token, are supported.
The Twitter Blue subscription service is only open to users in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. With a subscription fee of $2.99 per month, users can access premium features and app customizations.
The NFT profile picture feature is still in its testing phase and may be opened to android Twitter Blue subscribers in the future.
