Twitter Visits Tron (TRX) Office, Could A Partnership Be Next?
Justin did not go into further detail about the reason for Twitter’s sudden visit. It’s possible that Twitter employees were genuinely curious about the new cryptocurrency. Or, it could signal an upcoming partnership between one of the world’s largest social media websites and the cryptocurrency company.

Nevertheless, this is the crypto community, and any seemingly insignificant news is bound to get blown out of proportion.
“Just like the ongoing speculation that there may be a possible partnership between Alibaba and Tron, the speculation that Tron will partner [with] Twitter is gathering momentum among crypto lovers,” explains one report on Twitter’s visit to Tron.
There’s a reason people believe a partnership could be pending between Tron and Twitter: Tron has already partnered with a number of mainstream companies. PornHub, for example, recently started accepting Tron. Tron also recently partnered with Shiftmarket, whose “Start a Broker” program has effectively launched 50 cryptocurrency exchanges and 100 brokerages across the foreign exchange space.
Tron, meanwhile, is still in the earliest days of launch: the fast-growing cryptocurrency company just launched its mainnet last month. Since launch, Tron has been announcing new partnerships on a near-daily basis. Many of these partnerships are incentive-based. Tron has reserved a certain portion of its cryptocurrency to companies and programmers who add value to the Tron network.
It has been previously reported that Tron has given approximately $200,000 apiece to 10 outstanding projects on its network. The incentive is designed to increase the number of decentralized apps on the Tron network. By investing in developers today, Tron is hoping to attract new users and organizations in the future.
As the Tron mainnet launches, a number of major cryptocurrency exchanges have already completed the Tron token swap. Notable exchanges that have completed the token swap (from the TRX ERC20 token to the TRX mainnet token) include Binance, Bitfinex, BitForex, Huobi, OKEx, Upbit, and CoinEgg.
It’s unclear what a partnership between Tron and Twitter would look like. Justin Sun did not disclose any further details of the meeting to the community, and Twitter has been completely quiet.
Facebook is rumored to be exploring the launch of its own cryptocurrency. Could Twitter be doing the same? Or is this Tron/Twitter meeting just two major San Francisco-based tech companies having an innocent, insignificant lunch? Time will tell.
