If you have your Twitter and LinkedIn accounts synced, you may have noticed over the last few days that your tweets are no longer being shared on LinkedIn. This is due to a change that Twitter made, ending a partnership that began in 2009.
“If you had previously synced your LinkedIn and Twitter accounts, and selected the option to share Tweets on LinkedIn, those Tweets generated from Twitter will no longer appear on LinkedIn. There will be no other changes to your LinkedIn experience,” Ryan Roslansky, LinkedIn head of content, said in a blog post.
While it was convenient to post a tweet and have it automatically shared on LinkedIn, it really is quite easy to maintain only one step — Start your conversation/status update on LinkedIn instead of Twitter. Once written, all you have to do is check the box with the Twitter icon, and click “Share.”
Your post will then be shared on both LinkedIn and Twitter in just one step.
If you’re like me and start 99% of your conversations/updates from a Facebook Page and have that synced to Twitter, which then automatically carried that post to LinkedIn, you’ll need to add the extra step of posting directly to LinkedIn…which only takes an extra minute of your time.
