The feature dubbed NFT Tweet Tiles, is an integration that displays the artwork of the NFT in a dedicated panel within a tweet and includes a button to let users click through to a marketplace listing. The goal is to empower developers and improve the tweeting experience.
Still, in testing, the integration is currently with four select NFT marketplaces, Magic Eden, the leading marketplace on Solana; Rarible,Dapper Labs, and Jump. trade, a sport-centric NFT marketplace. These marketplaces support several blockchains, including Ethereum, Solana, Flow, Polygon, Tezos, and Immutable X.
The feature is Blockchain agnostic, which means it supports all blockchains, as long as the links are from select marketplaces.
Currently, the feature is being tested with select Twitter users across iOS and the web. The users will see the NFT Tweet tiler integration if they are in the group. A Twitter Blue premium subscription is not necessary in order to use the feature.
