    Twitter is in a partnership with Amex that allows people to tweet #hashtags to buy stuff.

    Does this mean hashtag theft will become a big thing?

    As Dave said in the other thread, this could be really dangerous for buyers. Which of course means that it's a goldmine for marketers.

    Reminds me of the very first rule I learned in economics - TINSTAAFL - There Is No Such Thing As A Free Lunch.

    My only thought on this: #why. That being said I admit to not being part of the Twitterati yet but even for mobile payment, #theresanappforthat. #smh

    I heard about the development of this some time ago. Eventually we'll be able to just use our minds to imagine what we want to buy from companies who have a direct feed into our brains (then it will still take at least 24 hours to ship).

    I don't see this working out well - I think there's going to be too many issues with people mistakenly tagging purchases or leaking personal info, etc. If this somehow magically goes viral, maybe Twitter can release a statement saying #itoldyouso

    Well all this craziness aside, Twitter is still one of the most useful social media platforms for business. For resellers interested in social media: check out this blog.

    Twitter has done some amazing things, and really revolutionized (if that's not too overblown a term) the way we interact with one another, with events, and with companies/brands. Nevertheless, I think they're still feeling their way, or maybe evolving. There's bound to be some missteps along the way. This may well turn out to be one of them.
