Rumor has it, Twitter is planning a big move into the realm of ecommerce – and this is a pretty big hint that the company is headed in that direction.

A handful of users spotted something interesting in their mobile settings today – a ‘Payment & Shipping’ tab buried betwixt other security preferences. When tapped, it doesn’t do anything…yet. Check it out:

Of course, having the ability to buy stuff by simply tapping a button inside a tweet would be huge for mobile shopping.
