  • Twitter Acquires CardSpring To Power In-Tweet Commerce And Offers: Twitter is taking full advantage of those spur of the moment buying decisions! Twitter’s newest acquisition, CardSpring, will allow developers to create card-linked offers such as electronic coupons, loyalty cards, and virtual currencies. Users who choose to take advantage of a discount offer from a retailer’s tweet may be asked to enter their credit card number. When that user goes to make a purchase with that retailer (online or offline!), CardSpring will recognize their credit card number and apply the discount.

Will you be taking advantage of Facebook and Twitter’s new online purchasing and saving capabilities? Let us know!
