Based on the official statement, it became known that Twitter, which already uses NFT, has included a new feature in the list of available features. Users can now officially validate non-fungible tokens that are used for a profile picture. So, for example, if earlier a user, copying this or that image, could not verify ownership without checking the Ethereum blockchain, now the official tokens will be highlighted with a hexagonal frame, and not the traditional round one. But it must be emphasized that this feature will only be available to those users who have purchased a paid subscription.
It is worth noting that some critics were skeptical about this kind of innovation, believing that hackers will be able to bypass the protection, copy the image and mint someone else's NFT, and also post it on their profile. In addition, the social network is based on the OpenSea platform, through which NFT is checked, and if it has problems, then the new function will also have problems.
Twitter has not yet given an official comment on how it intends to protect its users from hackers. Product Manager Esther Crawford only noted that their company is pleased with the discoveries that give new opportunities to their users in communication and learning.
“We see our future in cryptocurrency, and we want to satisfy the needs of our users,” the man said.
In this context, it should also be emphasized that back in November, the social network deployed a whole division that deals with issues of the technological space.
