WASHINGTON (AFP) - Twitter is exploring ways to sell products directly from the 140-character missives the one-to-many text messaging service site is famous for, a technology news site has reported.

Re/Code on Friday posted a screen shot of what this new service could look like, integrated into the site's familiar baby blue interface.

It said it found the image posted on e-commerce site Fancy.com, which appeared to be working on a partnership with Twitter.

In the screenshot, which is no longer able to be viewed, certain tweets are tagged "Twitter Commerce" and, when expanded, show a green "Buy with Fancy" button.
