NEW DELHI:

Twitter

will soon add a new shopping section in the app for various brands. Twitter is testing a new feature that will allow businesses to add a shopping section to the top of their profiles.
The new feature called Shop Module offers a carousel of products for visitors to browse.
The social networking giant mentioned that the pilot test is presently limited to iOS devices for people who use the service in English. Tapping on a product will link to a listing with the option of making a purchase without having to leave Twitter.
Talking about the feature, Twitter said, "People talk about products on Twitter everyday, so we’re excited about how this early exploration of the Shop Module can build a bridge between people talking about and discovering products on Twitter to actually purchasing them."
