In January 2022 Twitter announced an exciting new feature for the NFT community and Twitter Blue subscribers - the ability to verify your NFT PFP. By using your favorite NFT as your profile picture on Twitter, you can set a unique hexagon-shaped PFP that allows you to show off your favorite token and verify your ownership of the piece.

This feature sets your PFP apart from those who simply right-click saving avatars and adds legitimacy. When a hexagon-shaped PFP is clicked, it will lead to information on the token itself, confirming its authenticity.

Learn how to connect your wallet to Twitter to update your profile picture.

Using Your NFT as Your PFP on Twitter

Updating your profile picture with your favorite NFT is relatively straightforward. Before you get started, keep in mind that this feature is currently only available to those using the Twitter app on an Android or iOS smartphone.

Twitter supports the following crypto wallets:

  • Argent
  • Coinbase Wallet
  • Ledger Live
  • MetaMask
  • Rainbow
  • Trust Wallet

Updating Your PFP Using A Digital Wallet

To update your PFP to your favorite NFT using a digital wallet, open up the Twitter app on your phone and follow the following steps:

  1. Tap “Edit Profile”
  2. Tap your profile picture
  3. Select “Choose NFT”
  4. Tap “Connect My Wallet”
  5. Select your wallet from the list of supported wallets.
  6. Complete the signing request - this will include your Twitter handle and should only come from a domain.
  7. Once you’ve connected your wallet, select the desired NFT.
  8. Tap “Done”

Once connected, your NFT will appear as your profile picture, distinguishable from other users by the hexagon shape.
