Professional Profiles on Twitter now have new product display panels, and the feature is being tested among a small number of businesses in the US.

Twitter is working on a set of new ecommerce tools like the “Purchases” tab and in-tweet product displays enabling users to directly access in-stream product listings. This will allow users to create product lists and make purchases directly from the tweeted content in the app.
