Twitter has not responded to reports, from others and from us, that it is building a marketplace-style platform where users can buy things, but the social network appears to be quietly building it out anyway. The latest development is that Twitter has posted job ads for people to work on a commerce service — one of the rare times that the company has itself disclosed detail of what it is planning to do. Some of it confirms earlier reports of how Twitter commerce will take shape.
The roles currently listed are for a commerce product manager, a commerce product marketing manager and a senior manager for commerce partnerships.
At least one of these jobs appears to have been posted only earlier today, with a current Twitter product marketing person Tweeting out the link.
