How to Update Your LinkedIn Status with Your Twitter Tweets
This is definitely a good thing for all involved. It give Twitter more legitimacy in the business world. It gives LinkedIn much more activity then it currently has. And most importantly, it gives us, those that use the two platforms for business more efficiency in sharing information in our networks.
For those that tend to use Twitter more then LinkedIn, it’s easy to set your profile to automatically post your tweets. Here’s how you do it.
On your profile page, you’ll see the new “Twitter” section (It’s right under “Websites”.) Go ahead and click the “Edit” link.
In this example, I’ve already added my @scottjmanley Twitter account to my profile and now I want to add my company’s tweets (@FYIndOut) as well. To do so, I’ll click the “Add another Twitter account” link.
You’ll receive a popup asking if you want to allow LinkedIn to connect to your Twitter account. Because I’m already logged into Twitter as @FYIndOut on my pc, it asks me to confirm the account or tells me to log out of Twitter and log back in as the account I wish to add to my LinkedIn profile.
Once you add the profile, you’ll see that you have the ability to share tweets from that Twitter account on your profile with either “everyone” or “no one”.
You also have the ability to set your profile to share all of your tweets or just ones with the hashtag “#in” in them. For those that tend to use Twitter for personal use as well, this is a great way to make sure only your professional tweets end up on your LinkedIn profile. However, if you’re like me and you only use Twitter for your work life, you’ll want to set it to display all tweets.
All you need to do from there is click the “Save” button and you’re good to go.
Using this new feature makes it much easier to share your information with both networks in one action. It’s worth the 2 minutes to set it up. Good luck!
