Video: Chirpify Turns Tweets into Transactions

In this episode of Meet the Startup, Chris Teso, founder of the Twitter stream commerce platform Chirpify, talks to us about product evolution and what it is like raising money as a sole founder.

Chirpify turns Tweets into transactions, enabling consumers and businesses to buy, sell, donate and transact in-stream on Twitter. These are social, device agnostic, frictionless, in-stream, one step payments. We do this in real time at scale. By removing all frictions of a traditional payments or e-commerce system, Chirpify transforms Twitter from a broadcast platform into a transactional one. To transact on Twitter Chirpify users need only Tweet simple commands such as “buy”, “pay” and “donate”.

A Tip of the Hat goes to Silicon Florist for pointing us to this story.
