Twitter have unveiled a a new feature which will allow users to buy directly from tweets without even leaving the app. Twitter seems to believe that this will cause the art of shopping to maybe even become 'fun' again. Obviously they've never experienced the Bull Ring centre in Birmingham on Christmas Eve.

The scheme is currently in test mode, though certain accounts already have access. See the list below for who is eligible to have their wares bought with a tap. Notable accounts on this list are DFA1979 whose new album is out today and of course Panic at the Disco. I CHIMED IN AND BLAH BLAH BLAH the rest of the song.
