Twitter launched support for NFT in early 2022 under its Twitter Blue service.

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of META, commented that Instagram will begin testing the integration of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) starting this week.

Twitter Blue has a subscription cost of $2.99 per month, Instagram will give free support for NFT users.

This week we're starting to test digital collectibles on Instagram so creators and collectors can display their NFTs on their profile. Similar functionality is coming to Facebook soon, along with augmented reality NFTs on Instagram Stories via Spark AR so you can place digital art into physical spaces. - Mark Zuckerberg

Alexandru Voica of META EMEA commented that META started with NFTs because they are an important aspect because of the economic potential of the metaverse, but the company is exploring other web3 technologies.

It's unclear why Instagram wants to coin its own NFTs, but it's clear that for many NFT markets gas tariffs are a big barrier to entry.
