Who should I follow for NFTs on Twitter?
Twitter is where artists, collectors, technologists, and observers from all corners of the NFT world come together in conversation. If you’re interested in NFT artwork, but you’re not sure who to follow, a good place to start is always by following artists you like. They’ll likely interact with other NFT artists and collectors on Twitter, and by watching who they communicate with and follow, you’ll learn more and be able to dive deeper into the NFT community.
If you’re very new to the community and not familiar with many artists yet, following NFT art marketplaces like SuperRare on Twitter will expose you to artists, collectors, and enthusiasts. This is also a great way to learn about exhibitions, events, and collaborations with other organizations in the web3 ecosystem.
Over time, you’ll come to notice that there are some individuals in the NFT community who are themselves well-known as collectors, artists, and speakers. Following these individuals is another way to get a baseline understanding of the NFT art community on Twitter.

How do I participate in the NFT community on Twitter?
It might feel scary at first, but jumping into the NFT art community on Twitter is easy. Did an artist you like Tweet one of their artworks? Comment and tell them how much you like it. Did someone say something insightful? DM them to start a discussion.
A growing aspect of the NFT community on Twitter came with the introduction of Twitter spaces. Similar in concept to the app Clubhouse, Twitter spaces are live audio sessions that participants in the NFT community often treat like live radio shows or live podcast recordings. While the hosts of a space guide the conversation, many spaces will allow audience members to speak about the topic of conversation. Even just listening to Twitter spaces regularly is a good way to know what’s going on, but participating in conversations will give you a boost when it comes to making friends and connections in the NFT community.

How do I find NFT art on Twitter?
It’s hard to navigate marketplaces sometimes when you aren’t sure what to look for, even ones with robust discoverability features. On Twitter, artists will often Tweet newly minted works with links and auction or pricing information, and collectors will sometimes Tweet favorite or newly acquired pieces in their collections, and even use Twitter to let the community know when they choose to sell or auction pieces from their collections on the secondary market. Some Twitter spaces and tweet threads are even dedicated to allowing artists to promote and talk about their work. As long as you can put the time in to explore, you’ll find that Twitter is a hub for NFT artwork.
