Amazon deals via Twitter

twitter_logoI’ve been using Twitter for a couple months now and am fascinated how the service has grown from strength to strength. I still believe that the true potential of Twitter has yet to be found. The ability to reach anyone via any medium could and I think will revolutionize the PR and advertising worlds.

Today I read that Amazon is using Twitter to announce Gold Box Deals. These deals can be pushed out to a massive audience via RSS, email, SMS etc.

Imagine having personalized recommendations sent to you as and when they become available. If I were in the market for a Wii, I could update a service like Amazon and they would notify me of specials, stock levels, games, reviews etc. When I’ve had enough, I simple cancel the request.
