Twitter has the vision to be an “everything app”, and recently they have unveiled a partnership with Shopify. This collaboration aims to open up new avenues for Shopify merchants. Allowing them to amplify their product promotions through the app.

Building foundations

While details about the deal are still emerging, it’s notable that Twitter already had a pre-existing partnership with Shopify.
