Twitter Enables Live Shopping

Live shopping is everywhere! Recently, YouTube tested such a feature. Facebook introduced live shopping Fridays, and Instagram showcased live shopping events. Twitter is joining the bandwagon as it enables live shopping today. 

Twitter live-stream shopping

Live shopping on Twitter allows a user to:

  • Check Shop banners and Shop tabs on the live event’s page
  • Continue watching a live stream on the merchant’s website.
  • Toggle back and forth between the Latest tabs and Shop tabs.

Twitter’s first test of live shopping is in partnership with Walmart on the 28th of November at 7 PM ET. Jason Derulo, a singer & social media superstar, kicks off the live event. It will be a 30-minute variety show highlighting apparel, electronic products, home goods, seasonal decors, etc. 

Twitter enables live shopping on 23 November 2021.

Implications for Marketers: 

Live shopping on Twitter is a great way for marketers to boost engagement and sales. Brands should keep an eye on the first event to learn how live streams and eCommerce click on the Twitter nation.
