How to make NFT Twitter profile picture!

. 5 min read

Nowadays, we are seeing amazing Twitter profile pictures made by AI.

Also, you would probably many times that people changed their profile pictures with NFTs.

An NFT could be saved as an image file and you can easily make NFT Twitter profile picture with this JPEG or PNG file.

However, it doesn't show that this NFT is yours!  You can't just right-click and save an NFT image from the internet and use it as your Twitter profile picture. Twitter Blue has a more secure process that verifies your ownership of the NFT before displaying it as your profile picture.

Here's how to use the feature.

How to set your NFT as your Twitter profile picture

To make a Twitter profile picture from an NFT, you should follow these steps!

#1 rule is that you should do this on your Twitter app. This feature doesn't work on desktop.

Step1: To get started, go to your profile and click on your profile picture. The enlarged view of your profile picture will show a button labeled 'Edit'. Click on this button to proceed.

When you click on the 'Edit' button, Twitter Blue will give you three options: take a photo, choose an existing photo, or choose an NFT. Select the 'Choose NFT' option. If you don't have Twitter Blue, only the first two options will be available.

Step2: This will take you to a page that explains more about NFT profile pictures on Twitter.

At the bottom of this page is a button labeled 'Connect my wallet'. Click on this button to proceed. The following wallets are currently supported by Twitter:

  • Argent
  • Coinbase Wallet
  • Ledger Live
  • MetaMask
  • Rainbow
  • Trust Wallet

How to connect your wallet is a different thing than entering a wallet address to receive crypto tips. If you have already entered a wallet address to receive tips, you must still connect your wallet to display NFTs. If you connect your wallet to reveal an NFT and want to receive tips, you still need to enter your wallet address.

The process for connecting your wallet may be slightly different depending on which wallet you use. In this article, we used MetaMask, which required us to take additional steps to display an NFT in MetaMask.

Step3: Select your NFT to make Twitter profile picture.

Once your wallet is connected, you must select the NFT you want to display. The process for choosing an NFT may differ depending on which wallet you have and how that wallet connects to your NFTs.

Once you select the NFT, you want to use as your profile picture. It would be best if you cropped it. This is because verified NFT profile pictures appear as hexagons instead of the usual circle. You can make any NFT your profile picture on Twitter, but only NFTs you own can appear as hexagons. This is the whole point of the process.

Once you are satisfied with the crop, click on "Done" to proceed.

That's it! Now, you know how to make your Twitter profile picture from an NFT.

A profile picture is one of the most important aspects of a Twitter profile. Do not forget that first impression matters!

Can you upload an animated GIF as a Twitter profile picture?
