Thanks to Twitter we are buying the future!
I was recently amazed to see how many books on the Top 100 bestsellers list are ready for pre-order!
What is the twitter connection?
Just search on Twitter Search for pre-order+amazon+book. By the way, books are just one of the many items that are available for pre-order on Amazon. Apparently twitter helps to close the sale cycle faster, even before the product is actually available. Twitter helps to quickly raise awareness to the upcoming products. I also think that Amazon is doing a great job sharing this information here.
I wonder how that list looked few years ago in the pre-twitter era.
So maybe the real-time web is not just about the present but includes the near future too?!
