Fancy shopping while you tweet? Sarah Dobbs finds out more about Twitter's new 'Buy' function.
Twitter is undergoing some changes at the moment. We've had new profile roll-outs, new feature roll-outs, and all sorts of changes to the terms and conditions. We've even seen a new tweet font replace the old familiar one on profile pages and streams. Now, Twitter's starting to trial another new feature, one that could genuinely change how we perceive and use the service: a 'Buy' button.
Yup, Twitter is hatching plans to get itself into e-commerce. Or, as the email announcement put it, Twitter is launching a feature that will "allow you to buy merchandise from some of the most popular names on Twitter, without leaving the Twitter experience."
