Amazon now lets users shop straight from Twitter via #AmazonCart

Amazon has just released a new feature that allows customers to add products to their cart using nothing but Twitter (NASDAQ:AMZN, NYSE:TWTR)

| Internet & Websites News | Posted: May 5, 2014 7:35 pm

This morning, Amazon.com announced a new feature that will allow its customers to add products posted on Twitter straight to their Amazon.com shopping card from their personal Twitter accounts. The new feature is called #AmazonCart (#AmazonBasket in the UK) and requires that Amazon.com customers connect their Amazon account with their Twitter account.

 

 

Once connected, users can reply to any Tweet that contains an Amazon product link and include the hashtag #AmazonCart or #AmazonBasket for our UK readers, and the product will be added to your Amazon.com shopping cart. Before you get too worried about accidental purchases, this new feature will not allow you to actually complete the purchase, it will simply just add that item to your shopping card. Users will still have to visit Amazon.com to complete the checkout process.
