Tech Crunch reports that Twitter has announced its first commerce product — The ‘Buy’ Button. According to a Twitter blog post, the rectangular blue button with the words ‘BUY NOW” will be visible to a small number of US users. Clicking on the button will allow those users to make purchases within the tweet. Payment and shipping information will be stored by Twitter for future purchases. The test will begin on mobile and eventually move to desktop. We’ll be chewing on this one in our discussion section in just a bit.
