Amazon introduced the new feature that allows Twitter users to add items to their shopping carts by including a special hashtag within a tweet.

Consumers can do so by replying to tweets, which contains a link to an Amazon product, with phrases such as #amazoncart in the US and #amazonbasket in the UK.
