Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s co-founder and CEO, sold his first tweet for $2.9 million on a website called Valuables by Cent back in March.
Twitter has announced a giveaway of 140 non-fungible tokens (NFTs), which it announced in a series of tweets.
In a Tweet, the company refers to the social media platform’s original 140-character limit for tweets as “140 free NFTs for 140 of you, besties.”
The title of the company’s bio was changed to “dropping NFTs all day”.
Rarible is an online marketplace that gives away NFTs. The tweet gives Twitter users a chance to win one of seven NFTs, all of which are available in editions of 20, reported TechCrunch.
A website called Valuables by Cent sold Jack Dorsey’s first tweet as a NFT in March for $2.9 million. The tweet Dorsey sent in March 2006 stated, “just setting up my twttr”.
Unlike other assets on the exchanges, NFTs do not have a physical form, but they can be purchased and sold like other assets.
TechCrunch reports that more than 29 million tweets have been posted about NFTs on the platform.
