Amazon has just launched a new feature called #AmazonCart for US and #AmazonBasket for UK shoppers. This feature will allow Amazon shoppers to buy without leaving Twitter.

Just connect your Amazon and Twitter accounts through your social settings page and enjoy the new experience of adding items in your Amazon cart using Twitter.

To do this, Amazon has launched a new feature called #AmazonCart (for US shoppers) or #AmazonBasket (for UK shoppers). When you connect both of your Amazon and Twitter accounts, you will start getting tweets that have links to Amazon products.

And if you want to add some products in your Amazon cart, simply reply to the tweets with #AmazonCart (or #AmazonBasket in UK) and the items will be added to your Amazon shopping cart.

And you will get back a reply tweet from Amazon (@MyAmazon)as well as an email about the status of your request. It will tell you whether the requested item has been added to your shopping cart or not (if it was out of stock). It will also tell you how you can finish checking out later.

However, Amazon states that "#AmazonCart replies will be visible to whomever you replied to, to those viewing the conversation, and on your own Timeline (unless your Twitter account is set to private)."

Meanwhile, check out the official AmazonCart promo video below.

Get more information about the #AmazonCart and #AmazonBasket at @AmazonHelp on Twitter. You can also visit Amazon's help websites in the UK and US and get answers to your questions.
