We’re all big fans of Twitter- we simply cannot carry on with our lives without a confusing tweet from Harry Styles or a cute Ashton Irwin selfie. But the popular social media website is now expanding into more than just a platform for people to express themselves in merely 140 characters.
Before long you will be able to buy merchandise from your favourite artists just via Twitter. How cool is that?
Recently on their blog, Twitter announced:
Today we are beginning to test a new way for you to discover and buy products on Twitter. For a small percentage of U.S. users (that will grow over time), some Tweets from our test partners will feature a “Buy” button, letting you buy directly from the Tweet.
So, in the near future, you will be able to go onto your favorite’s Twitter and be able to purchase a merchandise item from a simple tweet.
One of the many verified counts participating in the experiment is none other than Demi Lovato. Over the coming weeks, you’ll see some awesome items of official Demi merch available to buy straight from her Twitter account. So you can tweet about how much you love her the same time as you’re buying the latest t-shirt from her merchandising store. Multitasking at its finest!
What do you think of the idea?
