Find your tweet that you want to eternalize and request a mint by replying to that tweet with -
@TwiTzNFT mint tz-address : will create a mint request with the mentioned Tezos address as the recipient
@TwiTzNFT mint tezos_domain.tez : will create a mint request with the mentioned Tezos domain as the recipient
@TwiTzNFT mint : will create a mint request with the address associated with the Kukai wallet of the Twitter profile which created the tweet as the recipient
@TwiTzNFT mint @twitter_username : will create a mint request with the address associated with the Kukai wallet of the mentioned Twitter profile as the recipient.
TwiTz also supports 2 different color themes:
Light: using just mint in the request will mint the tweet in the light theme, eg. @TwiTzNFT mint @gdsoumya
Dark: using mint-dark in the request will mint the tweet in the dark theme, eg. @TwiTzNFT mint-dark @gdsoumya
Once the mint request is made TwiTz will provide a claim link that will let you claim the NFT. The NFT is minted only after it has been claimed and anyone can perform the claim operation and pay the fees but the NFT will always be minted to the recipient specified in the mint request.
TwiTz is very restrictive about who can mint a tweet and only allows the author of the tweet to be able to request a mint. This restriction is needed for 2 reasons mainly :
The author of the tweet should have true ownership, if their tweet is minted they should have the first right to own it or decide who should have it.
A particular tweet can only be minted once, this adds uniqueness and legitimacy to that minted NFT. If anyone could mint the tweets then the value and legitimacy of the NFTs are lost. Each tweet currently is by virtue legitimate in the sense that the author of the tweet has either minted it or has ownership of it if someone else minted it for them.
Though users cannot mint another user’s tweet for themselves, they can always mint the tweet for the author. If the tweet is minted to the Twitter username of the author, the mint can be allowed. This enables any user to gift the tweet as an NFT to the author.
There are various reasons why you might not be receiving the claim link :
The mint command might be malformed (check for new lines etc.), the Tezos address, domain or Twitter username you entered might be invalid.
The tweet has already been minted, each unique tweet can only be minted once.
It can also be caused due to too many mint requests or general network congestion.
If you do not get a reply after making sure your mint request is valid contact @gdsoumya
The creator address used for the minted TwiTz will always be the Kukai wallet address associated with the tweet author account. This address will be receiving royalties from secondary sales on marketplaces like OBJKT.
Anyone can make the claim transaction for a TwiTz but the NFT will only be minted to the address used in the original mint request.
To claim the NFT there’s a minimal fee of 0.1xtz, this fee is used to fund the development and infrastructure for TwiTz.
TwiTz is integrated with OBJKT and can therefore any minted TwiTz can be traded on OBJKT.com, visit the collection here.
