Amazon now lets customers purchase from Twitter

Amazon logoGreat news everyone! Spending money on the internet will be getting a bit easier. As if one-click purchases were not enough, Amazon now wishes to make it even easier to lighten your wallet by a bit, introducing purchases through Twitter.

You can’t actually complete the deal this way -- yet -- but you can get the item into your cart, where it will await your next move.

Here’s how it works -- "replying with "#AmazonCart" will only save the item to your Cart. You can always review or edit your Cart at a later time. You will also receive a reply tweet from @MyAmazon describing the status of your request (e.g., whether the item was successfully added to your Cart, if it was out of stock, or how you can finish checking out later)", the online retailer states.

Bear in mind that your tweets containing the #AmazonCart hashtag will be visible to your followers, so you may want to think twice about what you are purchasing before using this new feature. You will also need to enable this functionality, as it is opt-in, thankfully. You can find instructions here.

There is a short video below which will also explain a bit more. But be careful about this easy spending and public visibility about your purchased items.
