Startup Lets You Buy and Sell Stuff on Twitter
A startup called Chirpify introduced a platform on Wednesday that lets you buy and sell things as well as donate money on Twitter.
The Portland, Ore., company has linked up with PayPal to make Twitter-based transactions, a.k.a. “T-commerce” sort of like writing a check.
For instance, you can buy stuff from your favorite brand just by tweeting “@favoritebrand Buy” (assuming they use Chirpify, of course.) You can also donate by typing “@politician Donate.”
