Amazon continues to update and remain innovative in the social media sphere with the introduction of their newest feature: #AmazonCart. This feature allows Twitter users to add products to their Amazon shopping cart by including the hashtag within their tweet.
Of course, to use this you need to connect your Twitter account to your Amazon account. Then when you see a tweet containing an Amazon product link, reply with the #AmazonCart hashtag. Then buy it whenever you want. Their slogan is “Add it now, buy it later.”
Really, it’s brilliant. Not only is Amazon making it easier for you to buy things, but they’re including your entire Twitter following in the buying experience, thereby keeping Amazon front and center in your mind and in your online conversations.
Looks like Twitter users have already started using it:
