After introducing the Bitcoin tipping feature, along with its NFT drop, Twitter took a step forward with the official announcement of its Crypto team formation. According to an exclusive Twitter thread by Tess Rinearson, Twitter\u2019s crypto team\u2019s head, this initiative aims to serve as a \u201ccenter of excellence\u201d for all things blockchain at Twitter. She noted that the team won\u2019t merely focus on cryptocurrencies, however, its reach extends \u201cbeyond cryptocurrencies\u201d, and they will work towards the expansion and enhancement of crypto, blockchains, and other decentralized technologies on Twitter. I\u2019m thrilled to share that I\u2019ve joined Twitter, to lead a new team focused on crypto, blockchains, and other decentralized technologies\u2014including and going beyond cryptocurrencies.pic.twitter.com\/HaP0k5hUOq \u2014 Tess Rinearson (@_tessr) November 10, 2021 Twitter \u201cgets\u201d crypto, here\u2019s why? While Rinearson asserted that Twitter truly \u201cgets\u201d crypto, highlighting the former Bitcoin tipping and NFT achievements, she also stated that there are several other layers to explore and that the new Crypto Team will be working towards deciphering \u201cwhat crypto can do for Twitter, as well as what Twitter can do for crypto\u201d.\u00a0 From creators\u2019 effort in utilizing the decentralized sphere to promote their interest through NFTs and cryptocurrencies, to bringing in the community perspective regarding ownership and identity, Twitter\u2019s aim is to \u201cpush the boundaries\u201d of the decentralized industry on its platform. Furthermore, the Crypto team will collaborate with the Blue Sky team to bring social media up to speed with the future of decentralization. \u201cFirst, we\u2019ll be exploring how we can support the growing interest among creators to use decentralized apps to manage virtual goods and currencies, and to support their work and communities\u2026Looking farther ahead, we\u2019ll be exploring how ideas from crypto communities can help us push the boundaries of what\u2019s possible with identity, community, ownership and more\u2026And, of course, we\u2019ll be working closely with the Blue Sky team to help shape the future of decentralized social media (and to make sure that Twitter stays on the cutting edge of this new landscape, too!).\u201d, according to Tess Rinearson\u2019s Twitter thread.
