Twitter Will Update Your Facebook Status - Here's How...

There have been a lot of people asking me how I am able to use Twitter and have my latest tweet also appear as my Facebook status. I wish I could remember where I first heard about this, but it does seem to be working.

Here's how.

  1. Get the Twitter application installed in your Facebook profile here: Twitter App For Facebook.
  2. You'll notice a link that says: Want Twitter to update your Facebook status? Click here!

That's it.

There may be some time lag, but it seems to be working fine for me. My understanding is that those who really pump the messages out in Twitter may have some of them get lost. I seem to recall reading somewhere that Facebook only checks your Twitter every thirty minutes (or so). I'm not twittering that much to have this issue, so I'm quite happy with this new additional functionality.

The only reason I'm not thrilled with it is that I am having Twitku flashbacks. Twitku allows you to post once and then have the message distributed via both Twitter and Jaiku. I felt like I was cheating, so I dropped Jaiku and stuck with Twitter.

This morning I also realized how bad I was at answering messages left to my Facebook Inbox. There are many Marketers grappling with what they should (and shouldn't) use in the Social Media space. I must admit, managing one's Digital Presence can be time consuming.

Thankfully, I love playing with this stuff.
