As the world of crypto has grown remarkably over the years, social media has become the primary hub for all discussions analogous to crypto.
Although it took time, the DeFi and NFT boom managed to draw the world’s attention to it, with more significant organizations looking to dip their toes in it. Twitter is now joining that list too.

Furthermore, according to the job posting on their official website Twitter stated:
“Our goal is to figure out what crypto means for Twitter, and what Twitter means for crypto: We help teams across Twitter build features that are supercharged by crypto while also thinking long-term about explorations in community, identity, and more.”
The opening for a Senior Product Manager, Crypto requires a candidate to have familiarity with dApps, blockchain interoperability protocols, blockchain scaling protocols, P2P systems, byzantine fault-tolerant distributed systems, or web3 primitives (like NFTs and DAOs).

Twitter’s NFT Dabble
The feature allowed users to showcase their authentic NFTs in a hexagonal frame. Although the reception was divided, this opened doors for the social media giant to look into the future of crypto and blockchain technology.
And with the Metaverse becoming the next big thing of the crypto world, Twitter might have tapped the space at the right time to establish itself as a leading organization in this race.
