Amazon will let Twitter users save products to their Wish List simply by replying with #AmazonWishList to any tweet that contains an Amazon product link. This move follows a similar initiative it announced back in May called #AmazonCart, which lets you add products to your actual shopping basket without leaving Twitter.
While #AmazonCart was available in the UK too under the #AmazonBasket banner, it seems that #AmazonWishList is currently a US-only affair, though it could be in the process of rolling it out further afield. That said, Amazon did finally introduced its e-book subscription service to the UK earlier today, so that’s something.
To use this latest feature, you will have to link-up your Twitter and Amazon accounts, which you can do through your social settings. When you reply to a tweet that contains an Amazon product link, you’ll be notified with a reply Tweet from @MyAmazon, and receive an email too.
Whether this proves to be a popular feature remains to be seen, but if nothing else it’s a timely introduction as we approach the pre-Christmas shopping extravaganza.
