 If you add #AmazonCart to your book, Tweets will hook into your book (product)–here’s how it works:

Under the program, users must link their account with their Twitter account. Then they need to add the hashtag #AmazonCart when replying to a tweet that has an Amazon product link (that would mean your book). The product will then be automatically added to a visitors shopping cart if the links is clicked.

Twitter users will get a reply tweet from @MyAmazon as well as an email from Amazon when the item is successfully added to their cart. The service is for U.S. customers only, although U.K. users have a similar service with the hashtag #AmazonBasket.
