Twitter forms a group “focused on crypto and blockchains”

Twitter forms a group

Rinearson first expanded on how her team will “be working to figure out what crypto can do for Twitter, as well as what Twitter can do for crypto”.


The team will also focus on how crypto communities can help “push the boundaries of what’s possible with identity, community, ownership” on the platform.

Rinearson then touched on how the team will be looking into supporting a “growing interest among creators to use decentralised apps” to manage and use virtual goods and currencies on the platform, which may suggest future integrations with popular DApps that support virtual assets.

Story Highlights

  • The newly appointed lead – Tess Rinearson – outlined Twitter’s approach to the project and its positive views on the crypto space.

  • She also alluded to how Twitter “truly gets” the ever-expanding crypto space and noted the introduction of Bitcoin (BTC) tipping & the upcoming NFT verification feature.

‘Crypto Twitter’ remains one of the most popular draws of the crypto space, with participation in the community often the first exposure many have to the crypto space.

Twitter will also be working closely with BlueSky – its decentralised social media project – to help “shape the future” of both its crypto venture and decentralised efforts.
