Twitter and Amazon Go Hashtag Shopping and Solve a Problem No One Ever Had

Amazon.com’s priority is to remove every barrier that might keep someone from buying something online. A particularly minuscule obstacle fell on Monday as Twitter made it possible for users to add items to their Amazon shopping carts with a tweet.

Just enable the service on your Twitter and Amazon accounts, and you can add a product discussed on Twitter by replying to the tweet and adding the hashtag #amazoncart. The next time you visit Amazon, the item will be in your cart, and you can then complete the purchase.
