Could Twitter be the next big marketplace

Shel Israel recently brought up an interesting topic on his blog. Although the web is known as a marketplace with eBay and Craigslist leading the way, Twitter is up and coming. eBay and Craigslist are forums where buying and selling go on, but Twitter is a true community of members. Israel shares several stories about how people have heard through items through Twitter, and it’s resulted in new jobs and the purchasing of homes. Although Twitter is not intended to become a marketplace, it may set the stage for community members to interact and connect consumers to the products they need.
