Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) is finally starting to get serious about commerce on its site, to the point where it looks like you will be able to buy goods for sale directly through a tweet.

Your Twitter feed is probably already overflowing with news and ads, but Re/code is claiming that Twitter is actively working with many companies to build a working commerce solution, one that will enable you to buy goods or services directly through a tweet.

Some leaked images from Re/code show sponsored tweets that features a sales excerpt and product images underlined by a price tag and a “Buy with Fancy” button. This replica also demonstrated that purchases and package tracking can be handled within twitter's own app.
