Meet #AmazonCart: An easy way to add items to your shopping cart while on Twitter


Buying books, diapers or has never been so easy. Amazon.com today unveiled a new service called #AmazonCart, which allows customers to quickly add products to their shopping carts while they use Twitter.

“Once your account is enabled, you can add millions of Amazon products to your cart without leaving your Twitter feed,” according to a promotional video announcing the service.

Interestingly, the item you reserve in your cart will not be fully purchased until you review your shopping cart.

Portland-based Chirpify offers a similar technology, allowing retailers such as Forever 21 and Adidas to market items through Twitter. Interestingly, Twitter itself is reportedly working on its own e-commerce service, so might Amazon’s move be a preemptive strike?

What do you think? Would you buy or reserve an item while perusing Twitter?
