Twitter has issued 140 non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on the NFT platform Rarible, giving them all away for free.
NFTs for all!
Twitter has created an exclusive range of 140 NFTs which it is planning on giving away to Twitter users.
Twitter is handing out the NFTs to users who respond to the original announcement tweet. In total the social media giant will give away 140 virtual collectibles. There are 20 unique copies of seven collectibles with unique design, bringing the total to 140 – the platform’s famous character limit per tweet, which made the platform stand out from the rest of social media at the time.
