The Buy Now links in the tweets pictured above reportedly didn't work. You can also see that the prices on the products in the tweets are insane with a pair of shoes for $170 million. Clearly, these are placeholder products put there for testing.

 

It is presumed that these links, which leaked via the twitter mobile app, weren't meant to go live. Officials from twitter and Fancy didn't offer any comments on the leaks.
