The ultimate shopping channel is coming to a smartphone near you:

Twitter is getting into the online shopping business--or at least pointing to places where deals can be had.

The company's new service, aptly named @earlybird, is an official Twitter account that the company plans to feed with deals at both online and offline retailers, as well as "sneak peeks and events." Users who follow the account will see these entries just like any other tweet in their stream.

This is another sign of the upcoming revolution that is going to produce a change in information consumption comparable to the emergence of the world-wide web in the 1990s. I need to stop procrastinating and write an analytical post about this transition.
