How to add an NFT as a profile picture on Twitter? Technically you could right click on the NFT and save the image as a JPEG and then upload it. But that doesn’t prove that the NFT actually belongs to you.
Twitter Blue has a slightly longer process that confirms your ownership of the NFT and displays accordingly. How to use the feature to add an NFT as your Twitter profile picture.
How to use Twitter Blue to change your profile picture to an NFT
There are a few things you need to do to get your NFT profile picture on Twitter. First you need to access the option. Then you need to connect your wallet and select your NFT. Here’s a look at how to do it…
1. Change your current profile picture
To add an NFT as your Twitter profile picture, you need to go through the app. Even if you have the Twitter Blue subscription plan, the process is not visible in the web browser version of the platform.
First, go to your profile and select your profile picture. Below the enlarged view of your profile picture is a labeled button To edit.
Tap on that and Twitter Blue will give you the options to do so Take a picture, Select an existing photoor Choose NFT. Choose Choose NFT. If you don’t have Twitter Blue, editing your profile picture will only show you the first two options.
2. Connect your preferred wallet
This will take you to a confirmation page that tells you more about NFT profile pictures on Twitter. At the bottom of this confirmation page is a Connect my wallet Button. Click here to continue. As of this writing, the supported wallets are:
- Coinbase wallet
- trust wallet
- Ledger Live
Unfortunately, the process of connecting a wallet to review your NFTs is different than the process of entering a wallet address to get Ethereum tips on Twitter. If you have a tip wallet listed, you still need to connect your wallet to view NFTs. If you want to connect your wallet for an NFT profile and receive tips, you still need to enter your wallet address.
The further process of connecting your wallet may be slightly different depending on the connected wallet. At the time of writing this article, a MetaMask wallet was connected, which meant additional steps were taken to display an NFT in MetaMask.
3. Choosing the NFT for your profile picture
Once your wallet is connected, you need to select the NFT you want to view. Again, this process can look different depending on which wallet you are using and how that wallet is accessing your NFTs.
For example, the safest way to view NFTs on MetaMask is to import them individually. This is quite tedious, so you can save time by importing only the NFT that you want to use as your Twitter profile picture.
After choosing the NFT that you want to use as your profile picture, you need to crop it. This is because verified NFT profile pictures show up as hexagons instead of the usual circle. That’s what this whole process was about. You can make any NFT your profile picture on Twitter, but only NFTs you own can appear as hexagons.
When you have the crop you want, select Completed from the top right corner of the pane.
Display your NFT on Twitter
Congratulations! Now everyone who sees your profile picture will know that you actually own the coolest NFT in your collection. And they’ll probably see that shiny blue tick, since you need Twitter Blue to verify an NFT profile picture. So, flex away: you have an NFT and at least eight dollars a month available to brag about.
