Are you ready for T commerce? Could this be the start of T Bay? Twitter move toward online shopping . . .

Lily-rose's curator insight, March 16, 4:57 PM

"Customer Relationship Management has always been the best form of use for social media rather than sales, so will this move get rid of creative advertising/social media campaigns by brands if they can make users buy their product instantly" - i'm not a fan, for the very short period of time i've been part of the 'Twittersphere' I don't see where the two objectives meet? The beauty of Twitter to me, is it's simplicity, the creativity needed to have an effective campaign with 140 characters and the potential results if you get it right. Twitter has had issues finding it's 'place' in the social media realm (a fb with just statuses, an instagram without pictures). I can see where Twitter is coming from in terms of increasing revenue but it appears to be a change in vision?
