NEW YORK (AP) — Amazon and Twitter are teaming up for shopping. The online retailer is rolling out a service that lets Twitter users put Amazon.com products in their carts — without leaving the social media site.

It’s the latest in a series of recent moves in which Amazon is expanding the products and services it provides to users. And it comes as Amazon tries to make social media a bigger source for sales.

Under the program, users must link their Amazon.com account with their Twitter account.

Once they add the hashtag “AmazonCart” in reply to a tweet that has an Amazon product link, the item gets “dropped” in their electronic shopping cart. Both sites will notify the user that the item has been added.
