As if you need more temptation to spend, Amazon has now made it possible to put items aside for purchase using Twitter. To start with, you need to connect your Twitter and Amazon accounts from your social settings page (you can also opt out). After that, it's almost too easy. When an Amazon product link like the infamous banana slicer above is tweeted from any source, you just need to reply with #AmazonCart (#AmazonBasket in the UK) to place it in your cart. At that point, you'll receive a confirmation email and tweet from Amazon. It's not quite an impulse buy, as you'll need to enter your Amazon account to complete the purchase. So far, we've confirmed that the service is now live in the US and UK, but there's no word yet of other regions. Meanwhile, check the video below for more info.
