Twitter has announced that it will give away 140 non-fungible tokens (NFTs) over the course of a series of tweets that feature several Twitter logo interpretations such as Furry Twitter, Rare Form, and Twitter Jggl.
“140 free NFTs for 140 of you, besties,” the firm tweeted, referring to the social media platform’s original 140-character restriction for tweets.
The company’s bio was also modified to read, “dropping NFTs all day.”
According to TechCrunch Rarible, an NFT marketplace, will give away the NFTs. Twitter users can respond to the tweet for an opportunity to win one of seven NFTs, each of which is limited to 20 copies. ‘Reply Guy — The Man Behind Mansplaining’ was the first to go up for grabs.

In March, the American tech mogul, Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey joined the NFT craze by selling his first-ever tweet for $2.9 million on the website Valuables by Cent. “Just setting up my twttr,” Dorsey tweeted in March 2006. The buyer, Hakan Estavi, CEO of Bridge Oracle, remarked the tweet was worth as much as fine art, such as the Mona Lisa. NFTs and smart contracts are also expected to be added to the music streaming portal Tidal, which Dorsey and rapper Jay-Z co-own.
