Amex / Twitter SyncAmerican Express and Twitter have a new ecommerce experiment in the works. We saw the first example of it at work in Monday’s $25 Amex gift card deal. Their ultimate goal seems to be to turn Twitter into another platform for ecommerce, powered by Amex’s proprietary Card Sync technology.

Their next step in enticing consumers to buy in? Beginning today at noon EST, they will be offering special deals on products from Amazon, Sony, Urban Zen and Xbox.

The products on sale are:
