    Does SAS Have a Tiwtter Tool?
    Does Share A Sale have a Twitter Tool?

    Linkshare has a Twitter tool that allows you to search for merchant products and tweet directly from their interface.

    It would be great if SAS had a similar tool.

    You have to be careful with a tool like this because there are a lot of merchants that don't allow direct to merchant linking from social media.

    Thanks. Do you know of Linkshare's tool. I believed that merchants that allowed it, would be the one's that authorized Linkshare to allow them to be directly linked.

    The tool I'm talking about for LS is a LS tool not a third party tool.

    I'll have to inquire about that.

    I know about Linkshare's tool and am not sure they gave merchants the ability to opt out. When it was launched it included all links in all merchants that had datafeeds. Since I don't work much with Linkshare I don't know where that stands now.

    IMO if a network develops a tool like this they need to allow merchants to opt in. I have merchants that allow limited direct linking from Social Media, but we monitor it closely. There are affiliates out there that just take a datafeed and spam out the DTM links without engaging in real conversations and without checking with the merchant's first. We have had to remove several affiliates from programs that were doing that.

    One more thing loxly. I took your advice and I've started contacting merchants and asking them about their Twitter policies. One thing that I'm finding is that some merchants policies are more relaxed than their PPC policies.
