Twitter is going full steam ahead with its Ecommerce intentions according to a recent regulatory filing.
The filing was primarily due to the acquisition of social data aggregation service provider Gnip Inc. However, more information was discussed on the topic of Ecommerce and online payment solutions.
According to the filing, the micro-blogging firm has stated they are liable for risks related to “credit card processing”. The statement does suggest Twitter’s intent on becoming a full-fledged Ecommerce platform.
