First-ever tweet up for sale
The first post on Twitter, which appeared on its co-founder and current CEO Jack Dorsey's account in 2006, is up for sale as an NFT, a non-fungible token.
Some social media enthusiasts are ready to spend a fortune on it.
Dorsey's almost 15-year-old message, "just setting up my twttr", attracted whopping offers after he posted a link to a tweets marketplace called Valuables on March 5.
The intense bidding war put the Twitter co-founder's post at $363,000 as of Saturday morning. Offers were rising almost every hour, and had risen to $1.5 million by 3pm GMT and to $2.5 million later on Saturday.
NFTs are a special type of token.
Like cryptocurrencies, they operate on a blockchain, but they don't hold money and serve to show ownership of some other unique assets like art.
