Twitter is growing its in-house crypto team

Twitter is hiring a senior product manager for crypto, according to a tweet by the company's crypto engineering lead Tess Rinearson. 

The position is described as a member of a new team at Twitter that explores "decentralized technologies, including blockchains, cryptocurrencies, and web3." There's a particular focus on creators, "especially creator monetization. In this capacity, we'll be looking closely at NFTs and NFT tooling, membership tokens, DAOS, and more!" the post says.

Twitter has been making big moves recently in moving into Web3. Yesterday, Twitter Blue, a paid subscription service offered by Twitter, began offering NFT profile pictures for users. 

Rinearson did not respond to a request for comment from The Block in time for press.

However, on Twitter, she did mention that the senior product manager will "really be my thought-partner in exploring all the opportunities for crypto x twitter." More job descriptions for engineers will be coming soon, she added.
