My thoughts are that this has the potential to increase referral or affiliate sales for people that use Twitter for business. It makes sense that people that see the product associated with a tweet, and link through are likely to be shoppers. Tweets without images undoubtedly get some traffic from curious surfers that are curious what an item looks like, but aren't necessarily shopping at the moment.
