How to use your NFT avatar as your Twitter Profile Picture?


Non-fungible tokens are digital assets that reside on a blockchain, especially Ethereum. These assets have completely transformed our ways of living by introducing us to newer concepts like decentralization, ownership, and more. There’s been quite a lot of excitement around them. While some want to store them as pieces of artwork, others use them for real estate transactions. Their applications are countless, and in all cases, they reduce effort, enhance security and obviate the need for middlemen. The explosion of NFTs has encouraged companies like Twitter to come up with newer solutions, such as offering a service to use your NFT avatar as your Twitter profile picture. Let’s understand in this article how you can turn your NFT avatar into your Twitter profile picture.
