Add-On E-Commerce Services on Twitter
I started this three-part series about ecommerce-related accounts on Twitter two weeks ago. It began with E-commerce Gurus to Follow on Twitter, and then last week I followed up with Shopping Carts to Follow on Twitter. As promised, here is part #3: add-on services to follow on Twitter.
When I first planned this post, I didn’t realize just how long it was going to get! Unfortunately, I don’t have first-hand experience with all of these packages.

I hope you don’t mind that I didn’t review each individual product for the purpose of describing them for this article!
