Twitter's Best Reactions to Amazon (AMZN) Prime Day

Online retail powerhouse Amazon AMZN has dominated the internet this week in the lead-up to Prime Day, its much-hyped online shopping extravaganza exclusively for Amazon Prime customers.

Amazon Prime Day is actually 30-hours worth of deals on thousands of items. Some of the biggest discounts are for Amazon products such as its popular Alexa, voice command-based Echo and Echo Dot devices as well as Kindles and Fire tablets.

The company often runs two different types of deals. Amazon’s regular discounts appear throughout Prime Day. The company’s Lightning Deals are only available at specific times for a certain number of products.

The deals are offered only for Amazon’s paid Prime members, which now total more than an estimated 80 million. Prime Day officially began at 9 p.m. ET Monday and ends 2:59 a.m. ET Wednesday (also read: Amazon Prime Day: An Illustrated Guide for Investors).

Now that we have recapped some of the basics, let’s get to the fun part. Today, news outlets, investors, and millions of people voiced their opinions, facts, and fun banter about Amazon’s summer sale on Twitter TWTR, and Zacks has some of the best for you.

Bottom Line

Interestingly enough, shares of Amazon actually closed down slightly on Tuesday despite its much talked about day of deals.

But a one-day dip isn’t much too worry about for Amazon investors. The company has transformed itself into an international business superpower that seems set to conquer almost any sector it chooses, and Prime Day is a celebration of that fact (also read: Amazon (AMZN) Introducing Geek Squad Rival).
