Web 1 – 2.0 – 3

So, Twitter is now supporting NFT avatars. To make sure people really, and I do mean really, know that you’ve got an NFT avatar, a proper one, connected to outside services, verified and everything, they won’t show it in the typical round fashion. No, you get a ”soft hexagon”, as they put it.

I’m not the first one to make this observation, but it’s too apt not to put it out there.

"Web 1 – 2.0 – 3"

Web 1 was squares, squares everywhere honestly, but more importantly, your avatar image on the discussion boards and forums you were hanging out at, they were square.

Web 2.0 was rounded, rounded everywhere, so avatars were circles.

Web 3 (whatever that will end up being, more on that later) is hexagon, then?

If you want that NFT avatar, you’ll need a Twitter blue subscription, and, for now, it’s only viewable in the Twitter app on iOS. That’ll change, obviously.
