Twitter recently made it possible for Twitter Blue users to display their NFT profile pictures. After Twitter, Facebook’s Meta also discussed plans to implement similar features. However, not everyone seems to be a fan of this development. Like cryptocurrencies, NFTs also have a lobby of disbelievers and haters. Since NFTs can qualify as art, their value is measured against each other. That means NFTs have value only when there is a pool of people who find them valuable. However, the underlying principle is the same for all currencies, be it fiat or crypto. As a reaction against NFTs, a GitHub contributor created a browser extension that would automatically block all NFT profile pictures. Mcclure, the Github contributor who programmed this add-on, is a firm believer in the inefficacy of NFTs. In the README section of the extension, he explains his philosophy behind making this app.
According to Github contributor Mcclure, NFTs are nothing but a bubble economy. He believes that the movement of hyping up NFTs is only to increase their competitive prices. Twitter, Meta, and other big companies working with NFTs play a major role here, according to Mcclure. He went on to say that the new Twitter feature is nothing but a cash grab opportunity for the company and Jack Dorsey. However, skeptics were quick to point out that Jack Dorsey has never shown interest in NFTs. What remains under doubt is how feasible this add-on would be when Twitter makes its framework more stable.
