Buy Amazon products on Twitter . Amazon has launched a new service that lets customers add products to their shopping carts through a Twitter #  hashtag. Called #amazoncart, the hashtag will add most Amazon products into your shopping cart when you reply to a tweet that contains an Amazon product URL. While the program seems like fun, there are a variety of reasons it is unlikely to become a major way to shop online.

You might find your accounts are already tied; if you’ve ever shared a passage from a Kindle, for instance, your accounts are connected. All tweets are public unless your Twitter account is protected, so perhaps you shouldn’t purchase things that you don’t want all your followers to know about.The account @myamazon will reply to your tweet fairly quickly to tell you whether the system was able to add the product to your cart. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.

It’s hard to see the benefit to the end user with Amazon’s program, though. There are no discounts offered, and tweeting a hashtag isn’t that much easier than shopping on Amazon.com.




What’s worse, searching for Amazon products on Twitter introduces you to an unseemly underbelly of bots and spam. Most Amazon links tweeted out come from bots, who do it automatically and randomly, with a lot of self promotion of self-published ebooks. It’s hard to tell whether Amazon’s affiliate linking program works with #amazoncart, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t, to cut down on spam. Will it last or be altered in the future ?
