It has was acknowledged by Twitter that tweets have an emotional value, when they backtracked their decision to cull the accounts of deceased people in 2019. Have you ever considered how valuable your tweets might be and if they have a monetary value?
This week the founder of Twitter Jack Dorsey sold the first ever tweet, that was written by himself, for £2.1m. Using blockchain technology the tweet was sold for charity. In order for it to be sold it was given a unique digital certificate called a NFT (nonfungible token) which are used to identify the ownership of expensive digital artwork and digital photographs or video.
This sale will amaze many and highlights the need for considering the value of digital assets.
