Co-founder and head of Twitter Jack Dorsey put up his very first tweet for auction.
This is a post published on the microblogging service on March 21, 2006. Then Dorsey simply wrote: “just setting up my twttr” (“just setting up my twitter”).

Jack Dorsey now wants to sell this tweet through the Valuables platform as a non-fungible token (NFT). And the most interesting thing is that there are those who want to buy it, and the rates are gradually increasing. There is a buyer willing to pay $ 2 million – the entrepreneur Justin Sun (Justin Sun). And the other day the price has risen to 2.5 million.
As a result, the winner of the auction will receive a “digital tweet certificate, unique because it was signed and verified by the author.” At the same time, Dorsey and Twitter reserve the right to delete the tweet.
According to some reports, the auction has been held since December last year, but only now it has attracted everyone’s attention.
