LinkedIn & Twitter part company

by Ben Romberg | 03.07.2012
LinkedIn and Twitter have worked together since 2009 to enable you to share your professional conversations on both platforms. Twitter recently evolved its strategy and this will result in a change to the way Tweets appear in third-party applications. Tweets will no longer be displayed on LinkedIn.

LinkedIn know that sharing updates from LinkedIn to Twitter is a valuable service for its members. You will still be able to share updates with your Twitter audience by posting them on LinkedIn.

How can I continue to share updates on both LinkedIn and Twitter?

Simply start your conversation on LinkedIn. Compose your update, check the box with the Twitter icon, and click “Share.” This will automatically push your update to both your LinkedIn connections and your Twitter followers just as before.

What changes can I expect to see on LinkedIn? Any conversation you start on Twitter will no longer be automatically shared with your LinkedIn network, even if you synced your LinkedIn and Twitter accounts. As the two part company, the way in which you share content across multiple networks is clearly starting to change.
