Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is selling the very first Tweet he sent on Twitter back in 2006.
NFTs are all the rage these days, and it seems that not a day passes without hearing something related.
Now Jack Dorsey – Twitter CEO and crypto-enthusiast – is auctioning off his first Tweet as an NFT, as well.

NFTs, or “non-fungible tokens,” make it easy for the rights to digital artworks to be bought or sold using blockchain. They can pretty much contain any digital file – a GIF, a song, a video game item, etc.
It’s hard to believe that it was 15 years ago that Dorsey Tweeted the now-famous “just setting up my twttr” when he co-founded the platform. It’s even harder to believe that you can now buy and sell Tweets.
The highest bid so far? A cool $2.5 million in Ether! Whoever succeeds in purchasing the item will essentially get a digital certificate of the tweet that has been signed and verified by the creator.
So, if Dorsey’s account – or Twitter – aren’t around in 15 years, you’ll still be the rightful owner of the Tweet.
