Amazon has revealed a new shopping hashtag that allowed users to automatically add items to their wishlist via Twitter.
Shoppers send a tweet containing the #AmazonWishList hashtag and a link to the item (or replying to a tweet containing an Amazon link), and the MyAmazon Twitter account should reply with the status of the item, including when it gets added to your list, if it's out of stock and how you can buy it.
Users will have to link their Amazon account with their Twitter account, as they had to when the companies introduced #AmazonCart. Users can do this through their Amazon account settings.
Twitter recently confirmed it bagan testing a Buy Now button on its site, and later a payments and shipping option in some users’ settings menu. Perhaps Twitter is moving closer to a native shopping service.
