How to Link Facebook to Twitter: Attacking Two Birds With One Stone

Frustrated at having to post a status update, tweet, and promote your blog post all at the same time? We can help you take one element out of that equation by having your Facebook status updates automatically convert into tweets.

Linking Your Facebook Page to Twitter

Go to facebook.com/twitter and click on the “link to twitter” button. You can connect your personal profile (at the top) and/or any of your Facebook pages all from this page.

How to Link Facebook to Twitter

Note: you must be logged in to the Twitter account you are trying to link.

From there it will take you to a prompt to authorize Facebook to use your account. If you are not logged in, you will need to enter your Twitter username and password first.

Authorizing Facebook Posts on Twitter

Once you click on “Authorize” it will redirect you back to Facebook where you see the following screen and can select what type of content you’d like to share by clicking on the boxes.

Twitter Settings to Post from Facebook

Here you can decide how much information you want to share with Twitter then click “save changes” and you’re all set! Now you’ll be able to simply post a status update in Facebook that will save you from having to login to both services and post two separate updates.

Note: since Twitter has a 140 character limit, it will automatically truncate your post with an automatically created short URL (Example fb.me/XYC) that will link back to the original post on Facebook.

How to Unlink Twitter from Facebook

Note that you also have the option of undoing this link at anytime by visiting facebook.com/twitter. This is not an application by a third-party, but the official Facebook / Twitter integration. On this page, simply select the “unlink from Twitter” link next to the Twitter accounts you no longer wish to have associated with their respective Facebook pages. Incidentally, you can also access this connection from within Twitter.

Linking Your Tweets to Facebook

Additionally, you can post your Tweets to your Facebook page by going to twitter.com/settings/applications however as of June 2015 when we last checked, this feature is experiencing technical issues. There have been some comments below from our readers on their first hand experience and efforts to link them, however we’ll be sure to update this post when the issue is officially fixed and working again.

Social Media Management Tools

Update March 2016: Many of our readers have encountered issues with the link feature. After recreating the issue ourselves we have found the problem to be true, so we feel your pain. While the above instructions are intended to work properly, social media is an ever changing platform making it difficult to keep up with the technology. For that reason, we strongly encourage you to try out a social media management tool that accomplishes the same goal: posting content simultaneously to Facebook and Twitter. Better yet, most tools allow you to post to additional platforms like Linkedin and Google plus too so you can kill more than two birds with one stone. In fact, you’re in luck because we did an in-depth review of the various social media management tools comparing all the features so you can find which is the right fit for you. We are big fans of SproutSocial and have been using it for years, but there are plenty to choose from. So be sure to check it out and hopefully they can solve your posting problems.

I have linked my fb to my twitter. But how do I share an older post from my fb onto my linked twitter account?

My tweets always showed up on my FB timeline until today. I have not altered any settings, so can’t understand why they no longer sync. When I go into the Twitter/settings/apps page, FB is not showing there.

Fionamarg, sorry to hear! If your Tweets aren’t posting to your Facebook profile, you might try fix disconnecting and reconnecting Twitter for Facebook in your account settings and sign out of both your Twitter and Facebook accounts and clear your cache and cookies first. Then log back in and see if the app is under your Twitter settings. Hope that helps!

I am able to auto-post only TEXTS FB page posts to Twitter. Over the last few weeks, I noticed my FB posts stopped posting if there is even ONE image. Should this be happening?

I have successfully linked my Facebook Page to post on my twitter and have selected all the options for it to post text, photos, videos etc, – however, if I post, say, 4 photos on Facebook and add a caption to it – it only posts the caption to Twitter and no photos…..am I missing something?
Sadie Cornelius
Admin
Sadie Cornelius
Cat, great news that you were able to sync them up! Sorry to hear you are having trouble with it sharing multiple photos though. We’ve never tried but perhaps because due to Twitter not having Photo Albums it summarizes the post and linking to it on Facebook to see them all. I might recommend if you want to show each photo on Twitter to upload individually. Not ideal but could be a solution for you.

I created Twitter and Instagram accounts and a Facebook page for a nonprofit and connected Twitter and FB. When tweeting, the messages appear on my personal FB page/show that they are coming from me. What settings should be adjusted so that Tweets from the charity reflect the charity name and not my own? Thanks!

Erika, on the Twitter app (https://twitter.com/settings/applications) once you are logged in and connected make sure you click the box “post to my Facebook page” not “post to my Facebook profile” to see if that fixes it!

I can post updates from the Facebook to Twitter. What I meant is as I update my Facebook the same gets updated on Twitter but this is not happening vice versa. I actually want my Twitter posts to go on Facebook Page.
Sadie Cornelius
Admin
Sadie Cornelius
Sivaram, to get your Twitter posts to post to Facebook log in to Twitter, go under settings then apps (https://twitter.com/settings/applications) and under the Facebook app click connect. You will be prompted to enter your log in credentials (if not already logged in) then select which page (or your personal profile) and what content you’d like to promote. Hopefully that works for you I just tested and it worked fine for me.

Hi Sadie, Thank you for your response. I have tried doing that but whenever I go under settings and then apps it was not showing me facebook. I have connected my facebook to twitter so it shows the facebook app now but only option I have is ‘Revoke Access’.

Sadie Cornelius
Sivaram, I’m sorry you are still experiencing issues, I know the app has been flaky in the past too, but perhaps something you can reach out to Twitter or Facebook directly for help! You might also try disconnecting and re-connecting as that might do the trick. Good luck!

In the apps section I have facebook app and it says ‘Revoke Access’. The app only appeared after I had connected my facebook to twitter from facebook. Prior to it I did not have the facebook synbol in apps section.

I keep trying to link my Facebook page to Twitter (I tried both from my iphone and then from my laptop following the instructions) but each time I end up with an error message when I click on “authorize app.” The message I get each time is “Sorry, something went wrong.

Utkarsh, try unlinking them and then re-linking to make sure it’s connected properly and if that doesn’t work, we recommend using a third party social media management tool to schedule your posts since this feature on Facebook seems to be experiencing issues with many others. Hope that helps!

We linked our fanpage to Twitter and it’s working great for text posts, videos and picture posts, but link posts are not mirrored. Only once in while a link post is mirrored (maybe once every 10 days). We didn’t recognize a pattern yet. We already unlinked and relinked again but it didn’t help. We also selected the checkbox links in the section “which content would you like to share” and the link posts are set on public. Any suggestions? Best regards from Germany.
Sadie Cornelius
Admin
Sadie Cornelius
Marco, that is very strange and sorry to hear you are having trouble! Many people are experiencing similar problems with the link feature as there seems to be some bugs/glitches with it. I have recommended this to others but perhaps you could consider using a 3rd party social media management tool like Buffer which will allow you to post to multiple social media channels at once? Maybe that can help do what you are trying to accomplish. Best of luck and if we have any updates will be sure to update the article for our readers!

I don’t even get images to transfer from Facebook to Twitter – only a link to my images, which does me no good. If you know how to fix that, the robots and I would love to hear how. We keep searching for info, but not finding anything.

Yes the problem still exists. Facebook not posting to Twitter that is. I’ve tried everything I’ve found in forums and FB page will no longer post to Twitter. I take it FB isn’t addressing the issue because I see many people have the same problem. It would be nice to see this problem written about in all the major blogs. Maybe once it goes viral on the old interwebs they’ll fix it.

A friend and I jointly run a Twitter account and Facebook fan page. Is there a way to link the two so that if we use twitter on our own devices (logged into different personal Facebook accounts) those tweets will still show on our Facebook fan page. It seems at the moment we have to disconnect and reconnect with our own Facebook account every time we write a tweet.
Sadie Cornelius
Admin
Sadie Cornelius
Thomas, that is great to hear you and your friend have a system to tag team and co-Tweet and post together. However, that is an unusual situation and one that will take further exploration for us to look into – beyond what we have covered in this article. We’re happy to look into it for you, unless you have already found a solution. Or perhaps someone else in the community can share their advice here for you too!?
Thomas Fallows
Thomas Fallows
Thanks, we figured it out. Once it is connected on one device, it automatically works across them all. It wasn’t running initially because we were running an adblocker plug-in, but now that we’ve disabled that it works fine.

Hmmm. I’ve tried over and over to connect my FB account, both personal and business page to my Twitter account, but it doesn’t work. I’ve done test runs, rebooted my computer, and even called Apple customer service and they didn’t know why. The page is more of a placeholder than anything else, as it doesn’t even allow me to unlink from Twitter, yet it isn’t even linked. Can you help? Thanks! P.S. It works in reverse, however, from Twitter to FB, but that’s not what I really want to be doing. Thank you.
Sadie Cornelius
Admin
Sadie Cornelius
Lisa, I’m sorry you are having trouble! Many people have experienced the same issues. Rebooting your computer and Apple Support are usually two solutions to everything but in this case, it’s more than likely an error with Twitter and Facebook, which are impossible to get customer service from unfortunately. We’ve been troubleshooting this issue ourselves and trying to recreate the problem and it works sometimes but not others. So I’m sorry I don’t know what else to tell you at this point other than if you are trying to post to two accounts at once, we might recommend a service like Sprout Social to do both at once: https://www.werockyourweb.com/go/sproutsocial/

I’m having the same problem connecting Twitter to Facebook under Twitter settings. The option of connecting Facebook to Twitter still works but doesn’t show tweets on Facebook but shows Facebook posts on Twitter. No way can Twitter be connected to Facebook without the connect to Facebook option. Really bloody annoying.

Ash, sorry to hear the two are not working properly! As a solution we recommend using a social media manager like SproutSocial or Hootsuite to schedule your posts…perhaps that can help you in your social media efforts and help you accomplish what you are trying to achieve.

So, this is the problem for me: I update my Facebook page, Twitter shows the first characters of my update if it’s too long (no problem there) but if there is a link within the update, when my Tweeter followers click on it, it doesn’t take them to my Facebook page (where they will be able to read the whole update, including the link) but to the link (and they won’t read my update). Am I doing something wrong? Is there any workaround for this? Thank you!
Sadie Cornelius
Admin
Sadie Cornelius
Cesar, if installed properly Facebook should create a shortened URL and link all Tweets back to Facebook where you can read the full post along with any links you share (regardless of the post length). Perhaps you can unlink your page and then try reconnecting and that might fix the issue?
Lara McKusky
Lara McKusky
So this says I can post to Twitter via FB. Which I used to do, up until April 2015 actually, but stopped for a while. I go back to re-connect and lo and behold, it’s doing the reverse: posting my Twitter updates to FB! wtheck? Any ideas?

UPDATE: Never mind! I followed your directions down below in reverse, found the problem and revoked access. Thank you!

There doesn’t seem to be a “save” option in the Twitter settings, after the FB connect fanpage has been selected under “apps”. Everything connects fine to FB, but just no save option. Therefore any tweets posted do not filter through to the selected FB fanpage. However, post on FB fanpage do come through on twitter. Any ideas why I cannot save the FB connect settings in Twitter?
Sadie Cornelius
Admin
Sadie Cornelius
Sorry to hear you are having trouble. There is no “save” button but it should automatically connect once you give Twitter permission to access your Facebook account. If connected properly there will be a “disconnect” button next to your Facebook app. I believe you can only have tweets post to a personal Facebook page (not a business page) though. Perhaps you can check your privacy settings (is your Twitter account public?). Finally, if you are still having trouble, try referencing this article: https://support.twitter.com/articles/31113#. Hope that helps and good luck getting them connected!
henriper

Thanks for your feedback Sadie. Settings are public and Twitter does offer the option to post directly to the separate fan pages (drop down is displayed). But yes, I am getting the button that shows “disconnect”. The only problem is that the posts do not appear on the FB fanpage. I guess I will have to use Buffer 🙂

Sadie, I’m also having the same problem. I set up a twitter account yesterday and have followed all the troubleshooting steps which Twitter have listed in their Help guides and nothing works, each time I check the box for my twitter to link to my Facebook page, it disappears and despite appearing to be connected to my Facebook profile, nothing posts from Twitter to Facebook. It works when I post from Facebook to Twitter. I have contacted them to ask their engineers to look into this. In the meantime, if you find any solutions, please post them, I’d be very grateful. Thanks
Sadie Cornelius
Admin
Sadie Cornelius
Alex, so sorry to hear you are also having trouble too. I was able to recreate the issue you guys are experiencing and see what you mean about being able to check the box to connect to a page but there is no save button.

I looked into their troubleshooting section and it says to remove and disable any pop-up blockers and plug-ins, add-ons, or extensions that prevent third-party site tracking and to try refreshing the page, signing out and signing in, or restarting your browser. However I did all those things and it still didn’t save.

Sounds like there might be some sort of bug in their system or perhaps they are in the process of changing the way that Tweets to post to Facebook?

As an alternative there are Facebook Apps you can install for your page to broadcast your Tweets on a tab – and that might be less overwhelming for your fans too.

Either way, appreciate looking into this issue for us with their Engineers and please let us know if you hear back from Twitter so we can update the article and our readers.

@alexHBG:disqus @disqus_nH1rSuQMsC:disqus Good news, it looks like the issue has been resolved! After troubleshooting a few weeks ago, my Tweets starting showing up on Facebook as of today. I logged in to Twitter and when you go under “Apps” in the settings and check the box for sharing your Tweets to your personal profile and/or a Facebook Page should save now. There is still no “save” button but if you click away and come back it should keep the boxes checked. Hope that helps and hopefully the glitch has been fixed for you as well!

Hi Sadie,

I’m experiencing the same issue and I tried at least 10 times to link my accounts (T -> FB fan page). At a moment, one of my tweets show up in FB but not the next one.

I thought it was because one of my FB post was successfully published on Twitter : maybe it disabled T->FB link?

I don’t find any article on the Internet that explained that you cannot “cross published” your posts/tweets from/to T/FB. So maybe it’s only another issue between T->FB.

Thanks a lot

Sadie Cornelius
Admin
Sadie Cornelius
Pierre, so sorry to hear you are having issues. There must be some sort of glitch they are working on with linking the two. I am not sure why it’s working sometimes and not others. I recommend unlinking them and then try linking again. And if all else fails, maybe you can use a third party service like Hootsuite or Sprout Social to post to both at the same time?

Danielle, glad to hear you were able to link your Facebook to Twitter! To get your Tweets to show up o Facebook, log in to the Twitter account you want to associate with your Facebook profile then go to your settings menu’s Apps tab and click “Connect to Facebook.” If you are not already logged in to Facebook, then you will be prompted to enter your Facebook login credentials.You will then receive a prompt explaining that Twitter will receive certain information from your Facebook account. In order to continue, you must select “Okay.”Then pick your privacy settings for who will see your Tweets and Retweets posted to your wall and you should be all set! Note that @Replies will not be posted. Hope that helps! Thanks again for reading and stopping by to read WeRockYourWeb.com!

Gabriel, an easy solution/work around for this is to use a 3rd party scheduling application/service like Buffer to compose your messages. You can still kill two birds with one stone but the photo will be uploaded and embedded directly to both Twitter and Facebook. Hope that helps and let us know if you have any other questions!

Hello, I was a happy user of the Facebook to Twitter link, since 2 days ago. I started a new link with a different Facebook page on a new Twitter account.
The problem is that Facebook page posts get often tweeted without hyperlink to Facebook.
The result is a tweet with just the title of the Facebook post.
It randomly happens with photo posts and shared posts too.
Thanks for helping
Sadie Cornelius
Admin
Sadie Cornelius
Matteo, glad to hear you are linking the two! Because the linking service is so limited, I would recommend perhaps using a scheduling application/service like Buffer to compose your messages. That way you can customize the message to be exactly what you want it to say for each channel in one place if that makes sense. Hope that helps and let us know if you have any other questions!

I have my Facebook account linked to post all my Facebook posts to my Twitter account. I also finally got all my Twitter posts to post on my Facebook page. It’s convenient, but there are some things you might want to think about when you are linking the two accounts.

I have a blog that is set to post to Facebook as well as to Twitter. I set this up before I linked the two accounts. Actually, I set it up because Twitter was having issues posting to my Facebook account and I wanted my blog to go there.

The problem is that you might end up spamming yourself. Or, you might end up posting things to your business account that you really only wanted to post to your personal account. The people who are interested in your business don’t always want to learn that little Johnny went poop on the toilet for the first time.

If you’re going to link your accounts, you might want to have separate accounts for your business and your personal lives. Otherwise, you’re spending just as much time trying to remove posts that went where you didn’t want them as you would have if you just manually posted to your accounts.

As a freelance writer, I use social networking to promote my content and I admit that I spend a bit too much time on Facebook. However, I found that it wasn’t too useful to link Facebook and Twitter together because either way you do it, you’re going to either miss out or confuse followers. For example, if you link Facebook to Twitter, the posts you put on Facebook wouldn’t have hashtags, unless you add them and then this might confuse your Facebook followers. On the other hand, if you link Twitter to Facebook, your perfect 140 character posts complete with hashtags may not be as well received on Facebook. I honestly find it best to give individual attention to each social networking channel. This allows me to customize the message for each group of followers. Doesn’t this take longer? Of course it does, but a bit more time can make all the difference when it comes to promotion. The key to ensuring you don’t spend too much time is to set aside time each day to promote your work and to resist the urge to checkout other comments and posts. Though, you must remember that some conversation is necessary to keep your followers interested and prevent being flagged for spam.

I tried this and I am so glad I did! This is the only way I’ve found that actually works. It’s either that or it’s because Twitter finally fixed whatever bug it had going on that wasn’t letting these apps work right.

I noticed the comment that talk about how this could actually cause problems. Yes, it is very beneficial to people like me who work online and seek to promote their work, but in my personal life, I find that both Twitter and Facebook can cause problems that shouldn’t be issues to begin with. If I didn’t work online I wouldn’t use either one of these (or any other) social media sites. There is such a thing as too much information and there are times when you can easily misunderstand things because you can’t see the body language behind the words.

My suggestion is to keep your private life out of your business life. If you’re using sites like these for your profession, your personal life has no place in them. As for your personal life, I’d say to keep that off the Internet altogether (unless you have an alter ego and must feed it. lol)

I went through and used the methods described here. I was kind of flabbergasted because I had already tried to do this a couple of years ago and either I wasn’t doing something right or Facebook and Twitter just weren’t playing well with each other. Of course, as many glitches as both of those sites have, it’s no big shock to think that they would have a function that wouldn’t work correctly.

Anyhow, I finally did use this method and it seems to work pretty well. The only thing now is that I need to remember to put the hash tags in my Facebook posts so that when it posts to Twitter it might actually be more useful there.

Now for the really good news. I do a lot of work with parenting, natural healing, education, and politics. I’ve gained a lot of followers because of this. Since I just got this feature working this week, I can already see that I have had followers added. If you work online, you know how badly you need to attract an audience and how many social networking tools are available to do that with. Though Twitter isn’t my favorite and Facebook has more drama than Peyton’s Place, they are still invaluable social networking tools for me and others who work online.

I linked these up a long time ago and they still aren’t working correctly. I have my Twitter set up to post to Facebook and my Facebook set up to post to Twitter. The facebook to Twitter thing worked right off the bat, but the Twitter to Facebook part has never worked. I see other people post on Facebook via the Twitter app, so I know someone has figured out how to get it to work. I just don’t happen to be one of those people. And let me tell you, it’s a pain in the butt to keep switching between them to try to make sure my entire audience gets a gander at what I’m doing.

I love the way you set this up with explicit instructions. I’m going to use what you have here and hopefully get it going the right way. If need be, I’ll just revoke all access and start over again. It’s little things like switching between social networking accounts all the time that makes the day go by so fast. And that’s cool for the work day to go by in a hurry. It’s just not so cool that so much time gets wasted. If I can link the two, I can literally save 1/2 the time I’m wasting right now going between the two. Since time is money and in the online world even more so, it’s important to use these kinds of shortcuts. Thanks much for the information!

Hello,

This app works well and I’d like to leave a good review on Facebook. My problem is that I can’t find the app page there. I go to the main Facebook app page, here, https://www.facebook.com/appcenter/ and do a search for, “twitter” and, “tweet”, but it’s never found. I searched in the main box at the top of my wall, it’s found, but I only get a blank page. Any ideas?

Thank you,

Guy

Do you know what I need to do so a person who follows me on Twitter can connect the link to my Facebook fan page without having to create a Facebook account. I have Linked both pages but when they click on fb/ etc.. to try and link to fb it says they must log in. They are able to connect and read other statutes on fb just fine without logging in or creating a fb page. Thank you

Hi Beth, check your restriction settings. There may be an issue with it there. Basically this is what you need to do to remove all age and country restrictions:

*
Log into your account and go to your page
*
At the top, click Edit Page
*
Select Edit Settings
*
Make sure nothing is entered in the Country Restrictions section and select Anyone (13+) for Age Restrictions
*
Click Save Changes

Hope this helps! If it doesn’t please let me know so we can find a solution for you!

Thanks,

Kimberly

Yep, not working. I’m wondering if it’s an issue between Facebook and Twitter again. I was using this feature for the last couple months with no problem. All of a sudden it stopped working.

So yet again this application is not working. I manage a variety of different pages and linked all of the pages to their respective twitter accounts because…well…it’s great. The only and biggest problem is that yet again it has stopped working. I’m not sure what I am suppose to do to get it to work. I have revoked the access then set it up again to no avail. Any ideas on how I can make this thing work again?

Greatly appreciate your feedback. Thanks!

In the first few comments (didnt have time to read everybody’s comment) I noticed people complaining that you might “spam” yourself if you are posting all of your facebook posts to twitter. This is a very valid point, and the twitter to facebook integration has been solved with an app called selective tweets. If you want the tweet to go to your facebook page you can easily put in the #fb hashtag which transfers it over. I am looking for an app for facebook that gives me the option to post to twitter, by clicking a button, entering a shortcode or something. Does anybody know of an app like this?

I have read a lot about the benefits of linking my Facebook and my Twitter account and I can totally see why somebody who is trying to promote a brand or a business would want to make use of this type of thing. However, for an average “Joe” like myself who really only uses these social media networks to keep up with friends and family from afar, I cannot see a huge benefit of having them combined so that the messages on both are the same. In fact, I have done this already in the past and it has lead to a little bit of trouble that I would not have originally foreseen.

Let me first say that I am not the biggest Twitter user in the world. The ratio of which I check and update Facebook compared to Twitter is probably twenty to one. I see how Twitter can be fun, but I also just no real interest in getting accustomed to coming up with short enough messages and content that people can read it in 144 characters. It just seems so limited and for the most part, the things that I read there are just obnoxious jargon and self-promotion. I think there is something about “being on Twitter” that is just so trendy and the thing to do that it attracts people I really have no interest in. Therefore, I just have not really got into the medium and have little time for it.

Facebook, on the other hand, I feel has a lot more functionality and that functionality includes what I can do with Twitter, so there is an element of redundancy that has kept me from crossing over as well. I have been a Facebook user now for about six years and I use it primarily to communicate with friends and family that live relatively far away from me. I also use it to post things that interest me, I find funny, and that I think other people would want to see. It is a great place of interaction for a number of different reasons and I have explored most of its functionality in my years using it.

When I joined Twitter, it offered me the option of linking to my Facebook, which I thought was a good idea because then my updates from Facebook would automatically populate my Twitter feed and I would not have to go to an additional site to do so. Well, this worked just fine but as time went by I sort of realized that I was not using Twitter at all and the messages that were getting out there to my Twitter audience did not always make sense without the context of my Facebook page around it. It led to some very strange exchanges and the decision that I just was not going to use Twitter anymore at all. I have the account still, but if you see an update from me, it usually means I’ve been hacked.

Hi,

I go to facebook.com/twitter and have gone to Subscriber settings to Twitter. But when I select link to Twitter it takes me back to my page.

I can post from Twitter to FB but not the other way around…I noticed others have asked the same question.

Does anyone have a solution? Is it a timeline issue? Why would it keep bringing me back to the homepage?

I have tried it from 2 different computers and it does not work.

Please help!

When trying to link from FB to Twitter using this URL http://www.facebook.com/twitter/ I just get sent to my main FB page. When going to settings > Subscribers > Twitter and hit the button “Link Profile To Twitter”, I also get sent to my main Twitter page.

Facebook.com/twitter has never worked for me, I had tried it a couple of months ago already.

Linking Facebook and Twitter together really is not that difficult folks. Or at least, it shouldn’t be now. I find that by starting on my Twitter admin page that shows me the list of “third party” apps I’ve authorized, I’m able to pin down the majority of “synching” up or linking issues.

Maybe I missed something already covered, but here goes.

I need to connect one of my FB business pages to a specific Twitter account, but FB pushes me back into my personal FB page in order to access.

Does anybody know of a way to make this work the way I have this set up, or do I need to open a different FB account for each business to connect to each Twitter account separately?

Thanks in advance.

Go to your Twitter Settings -> Profile -> Connect to Facebook. Click on it and it will show your regular page. Allow. Click on Connect to Facebook again and it will give you an option to check a box your FB pages profile. It will then have a drop-down menu when you check the box, and you can select your pages profile. Done.

Everyone that’s so hell bent on linking FB to Twitter – as a social media marketer, why would you want to do this? Having the same message repeated all over the place is annoying to your visitors. Take the time to write a unique message on each service, catering to your specific user base. That will keep things interesting and will have people visiting all your social media services, as opposed to just one (because with linking, they will assume all your accounts are repeating the same thing).

First, everyone isn’t on all social media. Some people use facebook and may have a twitter account yet never log-in. Linking them makes sure no one misses out on any valuable content – which is why they “liked” or “followed” your business to begin with.

Second, linking accounts doesn’t preclude you from tailoring content for the medium. Depending on privacy settings, a person’s facebook info may only be available to their friends, while twitter shows you a bunch of tweets from people you aren’t connected to. Moreover, you can create facebook-specific content and drive them to your twitter for something more suited to hashtags and 140 characters.

I had the same problem. So when I got to the page where you click on Link to Twitter and it just sits there…right click over the button and click on “Copy Link Location”. Then paste this into your address bar and hit enter. It should take you there. It worked for me. Hope this helps.

Essential, if you care about building your brand. You should have all your content platforms (website, blog, social media outlets) “linked” together and communicating with each other. Look at is as a pathway of roads for your visitors to traverse your “campus of content.” Just as students get frustrated when they can’t find a class, your visitors will be frustrated if they don’t find all your content niches that tie your message together.

I found when enabling posting from on e of my Facebook pages to one of my twitter accounts, that only status updates “from the web”, ie. typed in by me were copied to Twitter.
