🐦 Twitter Threads Worth Reading

👹 Savage of the Week

Arguably the best project after Bored Ape Yacht Club, World of Women (both are represented by Guy Oseary) launched their World of Women Galaxy collection. They are more like Mutants rather than Cool Pets, so an addition to the main collection. The art looks amazing, and they will have similar standing to the OG collection. For example, through their partnership with Sandbox, WoWGs will get a 3D avatar as well!

They welcomed 22,222 new NFTs into the collection.
