Shop on Twitter

ATLANTA (CNN) -

Move over Amazon.

Twitter is about to join the online shopping market.

Twitter has announced that it will test a new "buy" button that will allow you to make purchases while using the social network.

A small group of users will soon see the button on their mobile app on advertisements.

When you hit the button, the entire buying process will be handled within the app, so you won't have to leave Twitter.

The company won't say if it gets a cut of whatever is purchased.

Twitter already has purchasing "experiments" with American Express and Starbucks, but they aren't as seamless as the new "buy" button.
