The company further said that the NFT profile pictures would be displayed through a special Hexagonal shape on user profiles. NFTs can be in the form of videos, posts, drawings, or images. Some people view NFTs as the future of Art collection, and interestingly, almost anything can be sold as an NFT.

In Kenya, a number of notable users including marathon runner Eliud Kipchoge already own NFTs. Kipchoge is reported to have sold two videos highlighting moments of his career for Sh4 million.

Once you own an NFT, you will have the bragging rights for ownership of the piece of digital art together with the blockchain entry attached to it.  You can use it as your profile picture or post it online on your social media platform.

Buying NFTs allows you to support content creators, artists, and contacts who put up their digital content for sale. You can also resell the NFT for a higher price.

Twitter will allow users to click on a hex image to examine several features of NFTs, such as the token ID, blockchain type, and collection to which it belongs.
