Amazon, the world’s most popular online retailer, has joined forces with one of the most popular social media platforms – Twitter.
Amazon announce yesterday that now you can add items to your cart through Twitter, once your account has been activated. If you see a tweet with an Amazon product link, simply reply to that tweet using #AmazonCart and it will add it directly to your cart for purchase at a later date.
I like this idea. I think it has a lot of potential. I already use the Amazon app and barcode scanner to add items to my wish list all the time. Now with this new feature I can do the same thing if I see a product in twitter. Personally I just wish it went to a wish list and not my cart but that is a minor issue.
