On Tuesday, Elon Musk’s X announced a big vision for the firm in 2024, which involves the introduction of peer-to-peer payments and additional AI-powered products. During all of this, the business quietly deleted a function for paying users. They can no longer set an NFT as their profile image.

The functionality was first introduced by Twitter’s former administration in January 2022. At the time, Twitter Blue users could use Ethereum-minted NFTs (ERC-721 or ERC-1155 tokens) as profile images, which finally appeared as hexagons. Users could learn more about NFTs by clicking/taping on the profile image, which included information like as a collection of NFTs, the contract address, TokenID, and the software used to mint them.

X has deleted all details of the NFT profile image functionality from its X Premium support website.

“As a Premium member, you may personalize your profile to display the NFTs you possess in a hex-shaped profile image on your account. After making a temporary link to your crypto wallet to put up an NFT as your profile image, your digital asset appears in a specific hexagon shape that identifies you as the owner of that NFT,” according to the site’s prior explanation of the function.

People with an NFT as their profile image still have hexagonal avatars. It’s unclear if X will ultimately eliminate them as well.
