140 characters each: US online retailers will be able to trade via Twitter

    Such news on Saturday, September 13, "Twitter" announced in its newsletter to users of the service. Twitter has long been asked how it is going to earn money - and, it seems, the answer has been found: in the United States functionality is tested for purchases from some popular trading companies directly from Twitter.

    To do this, users will need to provide information such as a credit card number and delivery address. Twitter will regulate user relations with sellers, including responsibility for order fulfillment, delivery and return of goods.

    Other policy updates relate to countering spam and fraud - for this Twitter gave itself the right to request additional information from the owners of suspicious accounts, as well as explanations about what information about the user, including location information (for example, via IP address or nearby access points ) they collect.
