Twitter Stops Allowing Tweets on Linkedin
Many of you have enjoyed the social media benefits of automating your Tweets to appear on Linkedin as well. Using the simple hashtag of #in, your selected tweets have appeared on your Linkedin profile’s stream for three years.
We regret to inform you that the digital party is now over – well, almost.
In a letter from Linkedin today, they’ve advised their members that any updates initiated on Linkedin can still appear on your Twitter profile if you check off the box to do so. However, Twitter isn’t reciprocating anymore.
Will this change how you schedule and post your updates on Twitter and Linkedin? The full text of the letter appears below.
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. Starting today Tweets will no longer be displayed on LinkedIn.
We know that sharing updates from LinkedIn to Twitter is a valuable service for our members. Moving forward, 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.
If you would like more information about what this means for your synced LinkedIn and Twitter accounts, please visit our related Help Center topics.
