I consider my tweets to be masterpieces, where do I find a buyer for them?!

Twitter chief executive, Jack Dorsey tweeted his first tweet on 21 March 2006 simply saying “just setting up my twttr”. Flash forward 15 years later, that same exact tweet was bought over by a CEO based in Malaysia for about USD$2.9million (RM12million).

The CEO, Sina Estavi, bought over the tweet using the ether cryptocurrency, a rival to bitcoin, reported BBC. If you’re wondering how a tweet got sold, well, Dorsey’s tweet was auctioned off via an online platform called Valuables. Even though the tweet will still be publicly available, Sina Estavi will receive a certificate, digitally signed and verified by Mr Dorsey, as well as the metadata of the original tweet.

The tweet was sold as a nonfungible token (NFT), a unique digital certificate that states who owns a photo, video or other forms of online media. You must be thinking that it’s absurd to BUY a tweet but Sina Estavi seems to be pretty happy with his purchase and even said that this is not just a tweet!

“I think years later people will realize the true value of this tweet, like the Mona Lisa painting!”

Jack Dorsey plans to convert the proceeds into bitcoins and then donate them to the Give Directly’s Africa Response fund.

Is anyone interested in purchasing my funny albeit slightly depressive tweets?
