Tesla CEO Elon Musk isn't a big fan of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). At least his fury reaction to Twitter's launch of NFT avatars seems to indicate it.
On Thursday, Twitter Blue Labs launched NFT avatars for its subscribers. Users can now put their tokens on avatars by verifying them via OpenSea's API. Although the feature is yet available only to iOS users, it has already drawn attention from Musk, who has been an active supporter of a meme cryptocurrency called dogecoin (DOGE) over the past few months.

The Tesla CEO says it is "annoying" that Twitter is spending "engineering resources" on "bs [sic]" while bad actors in the cryptocurrency community "are throwing a spambot block party in every thread." However, Musk became a subject of controversy as his own electric vehicle company Tesla recently started accepting payments in DOGE.
Earlier this month, Tesla started accepting DOGE as payment for some merchandise on its website. Users can buy cyberwhistles, replicas of its Cybertruck and hats with the meme cryptocurrency.
As To The Moon earlier reported, some believe Tesla still can get along with NFTs. Circle VP of product Rachel Mayer admits the Texas-based company might accept NFTs that would unlock "exclusive features" in its electric vehicles.
