Launched last December,Twitter's Brand ages show a brand's Twitter feed and images. Now Twitter plans to add "experiences," including eCommerce options, contests, and sweepstakes, according to three executives familiar with the matter in an article in AdAgeDigital.
According to AdAgeDigital: "Twitter declined to comment on the new features.

co-founder and Executive Chairman Jack Dorsey is also CEO of
mobile-payments company Square. And American Express recently started a
program in which it sends offers to Twitter users in exchange for
certain actions, such as tweeting a hashtag. Dell , Best Buy, H&M and 1-800-Flowers are participating in the program"
