It seems Twitter is moving away from the strictly real-time feed behavior. In an official announcement, which may anger many followers, the social network has revealed that timelines of users will now include more than just the tweets from people they follow.
As told by Twitter, the move is made after a successful test which showed that most of the users like to see extra tweets in the mix. Trevor O'Brien, Twitter product team member in a blog post said:
Amazon has good news for its Twitter users, the American international e-commerce company just before the holiday season has introduced #AmazonWishList hashtag to let you add items to your cart without leaving Twitter.
Amazon in a press release said that if you discover a Tweet from your favorite brand, artist, expert or a friend with an Amazon.com product link, you just need to add '#AmazonWishList' to the reply on Twitter and the product is added to your Amazon Wish List.
