She has a track record of sharing some of the monumental technological changes in the cryptocurrency world before they were officially announced by their respective teams.

In an interview with the MIT Technology Review, Wong stated that she finds most of her tech insights while rummaging through publicly available code.

Twitter has made attempts in the past to embrace the crypto NFT sector. The company had previously launched a subscription-based service called Twitter Blue which allowed NFT holders to upload NFTs as their official profile pictures on Twitter.

The feature was instantly a hit among multiple crypto proponents, which may have played an instrumental role in enticing Twitter to expand into web3.

Furthermore, the platform has also launched a new feature called Tips, enabling users to link a third-party payment service and post their Bitcoin and Ethereum wallets to their accounts, enabling followers and supporters to 'tip' in those cryptocurrencies.
