Twitter has announced its first venture into selling products—@earlybird Exclusive Offers will be limited-time deals on products and events that will be listed on the @earlybird Twitter account. Users can follow the account for access to discounted products.
Retailers will determine the price of the @earlybird items and how many are made available to followers, and generally fulfill the transaction. Twitter will receive a portion of each sale.
While the initial deals will be available nationwide, Twitter is considering offering deals specific to individual cities or countries in the future.
