A new service lets you donate to charity with a single tweet. Sell Simply, a company that enables anyone to buy, sell, and transact on Twitter, launched Twitter Donations, a feature that enables non-profits and charities to collect donation payments with Twitter.

Sell Simply built the feature to enable companies and consumers to send a transaction-able Tweet request for a donation. Followers are able to donate to that cause simply by replying with the word "donate." When someone replies with "donate," Sell Simply makes a transaction that occurs between the two parties.

With thousands of listings for sale already in its Twitter Marketplace, CEO Chris Teso said "Donations are a logical fit for Sell Simply. We're already helping thousands of items be sold over Twitter. Donations are just another type of transaction we can make happen with one Tweet."

Established in June 2011, Sell Simply - profiled recently in EcommerceBytes - enables anyone to buy, sell, and transact on Twitter.
