@ensbot Will Now Tweet at You to Renew that .ETH Name in Your Twitter Profile

It’s been over a year since the ENS short name auction (for (3–6 character .ETH names) completed, and it is amazing that many Ethereum community members proudly put their .ETH name in their social media profile.

Why Vitalik and Everyone Else Has “.ETH” in their Twitter Profiles (and You Should, Too!)

body[data-twttr-rendered=”true”] {background-color: transparent;}.twitter-tweet {margin: auto !important;}

function notifyResize(height) {height = height ? height : document.documentElement.offsetHeight; var resized = false; if (window.donkey && donkey.resize) {donkey.resize(height);resized = true;}if (parent && parent._resizeIframe) {var obj = {iframe: window.frameElement, height: height}; parent._resizeIframe(obj); resized = true;}if (window.location && window.location.hash === “#amp=1” && window.parent && window.parent.postMessage) {window.parent.postMessage({sentinel: “amp”, type: “embed-size”, height: height}, “*”);}if (window.webkit && window.webkit.messageHandlers && window.webkit.messageHandlers.resize) {window.webkit.messageHandlers.resize.postMessage(height); resized = true;}return resized;}twttr.events.bind(‘rendered’, function (event) {notifyResize();}); twttr.events.bind(‘resize’, function (event) {notifyResize();});if (parent && parent._resizeIframe) {var maxWidth = parseInt(window.frameElement.getAttribute(“width”)); if ( 500 < maxWidth) {window.frameElement.setAttribute("width", "500");}}

However, people forget to renew their ENS names despite renewal notification services and the ability to pay ahead as many years as you want, and a significant number of names have been released recently.

body[data-twttr-rendered=”true”] {background-color: transparent;}.twitter-tweet {margin: auto !important;}

function notifyResize(height) {height = height ? height : document.documentElement.offsetHeight; var resized = false; if (window.donkey && donkey.resize) {donkey.resize(height);resized = true;}if (parent && parent._resizeIframe) {var obj = {iframe: window.frameElement, height: height}; parent._resizeIframe(obj); resized = true;}if (window.location && window.location.hash === “#amp=1” && window.parent && window.parent.postMessage) {window.parent.postMessage({sentinel: “amp”, type: “embed-size”, height: height}, “*”);}if (window.webkit && window.webkit.messageHandlers && window.webkit.messageHandlers.resize) {window.webkit.messageHandlers.resize.postMessage(height); resized = true;}return resized;}twttr.events.bind(‘rendered’, function (event) {notifyResize();}); twttr.events.bind(‘resize’, function (event) {notifyResize();});if (parent && parent._resizeIframe) {var maxWidth = parseInt(window.frameElement.getAttribute(“width”)); if ( 500 < maxWidth) {window.frameElement.setAttribute("width", "500");}}

As I mentioned in a previous post, we are expecting a peak of over 1000 names to be released on 4th February which includes many short names won during the short name auctions a year ago.

Once the names are released, it becomes available for anyone to register with 2K USD premium which decreases over 28 days (this is to prevent bots to snatch all released names with little financial cost). This sucks if you accidentally forget renewing.

Some quick Twitter analysis revealed that around 1000 users have “.ETH” in their Twitter profile name, about 500 names are valid ENS names (register your pretend name here), and nearly 9% (44 names) are already expired and in their 90 days grace period waiting to be released. (Three names — trung.eth, fabio.eth, and evgeny.eth — were within 24 hrs to be released at the time of the writing, so I personally paid to extend them by 6 months from the expiration dates. You are welcome.)

Trying our best to protect our community members, we have extended our Twitter bot @ensbot to @ you if you have a .ETH name set as your Twitter profile name that is expiring soon.

This works even if your .ETH name isn’t your whole Twitter profile name. The following conventions should work (at least I wrote a test):

  • Rick Dudley (afdudley.eth)
  • DeFi Dad ⟠ defidad.eth
  • Anthony Sassano | sassal.eth 🏴

It’s scheduled to alert you either a day or a week before your name become released, but we hope you will never be the receiving end of this from @ensbot. So renew your names!
