Two things stand out about the sneakers pictured above in a screenshot from Twitter. First, their list price is a cool $170 million (though we imagine that’s a glitch).
Second, there’s a “Buy now” button included in the tweet.
What’s that you say? You didn’t know you could buy stuff directly from a tweet? Neither did we. So what do we have here?Report: Twitter Shopping Buy Now Button Appears In Tweets [recode.net]
So did Fancy accidentally make public another Twitter Commerce experiment? Is Twitter starting to facilitate in-tweet purchases?
The companies aren’t saying. Twitter spokesman Jim Prosser declined to comment, and Fancy execs didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
