What’s up, Twitter creators and fans?
Digital art, a.k.a. Non-Fungible Tokens or ‘NFTs’ has taken the world by storm in the last few years.
NFT accounts are a great case study for Twitter and audience growth
NFTs can represent any digital file or good that leverages blockchain-based technology to verify the ownership, irrefutably, of the author.
Now, NFTs had their moment in the sun during the pandemic, and have come down a bit in the world since the frothy days of Bored Apes, Sappy Seals, Lazy Lions, and CryptoPunks being EVERYWHERE on Twitter.
But if there is one thing we can learn, it’s that Twitter audience growth was a massive boon for NFT projects looking to build an audience.
Yes, Discord got a lot of attention, but Twitter was the place to be for discussions on NFTs and building hype.
In this blog post will show you which guys are the big dogs, the heavy hitters, the ones who have shown how to get it done on Twitter and in the NFT space.
In this epic blog post, we’re gonna take you on a journey through forty of the top NFT accounts, showing you how they operate, what sets them apart, and how they’re making moves in the NFT world.
Whether you’re an OG NFT investor or just getting started, get ready to learn from the best of the best, and find some inspiration for growing your Twitter account.

degentraland (and decentraland)
OK, another awesome shitposter — Degentraland is a legitimate play on words from the NFT project “Decentraland” — a metaverse that is governed by the users who own the tokens associated with the NFT project.
This pun comes from the fact that in forums and online — it’s become a self-proclaimed badge of honor for NFT investors and gamblers to call themselves ‘degens’ or degenerates.
@NFTsAreNice is a consummate shitposter, Mutant Ape owner, and someone who loves to jump into Twitter Spaces. At the time of this writing, he’s built his following up to over 50k followers.

A film noir detective. “Rug pulls” are the infamous moves where fraudulent and malicious NFT creators conduct financial engineering and underhanded marketing to pump and dump NFTs that they control.
