Updating facebook status with twitter
It cuts down their workload significantly since they only have to publish updates on their Facebook Page, and the Twitter account automatically sends out the same messages.Now, Facebook is doing the same thing for individual profiles.As you can see in the screenshot above, the company has offered this feature for Facebook Pages for quite some time now.That means if you have a Twitter account, you can make it so that updating your Facebook status publicly will send out a tweet as well.A few third-party apps have done this in the past, but Facebook has been meticulous at blocking them.I've wanted to do this for a long time, although I was recently told that it's frowned upon to issue the same updates on multiple social networks.
As expected, Facebook now lets you send your status updates to Twitter.
It's all part of the company's new Subscriptions feature: not only is the social networking giant letting you subscribe to Facebook users who you aren't friends with, and not only is it letting you offer your own public updates to Facebook users who aren't your friends, but it is also letting you send your public Facebook status updates to a linked Twitter account.
Palo Alto has offered this particular feature for Facebook Pages for quite some time now.
It's great for businesses, bands, public figures, and whoever else manages a Facebook Page and an accompanying Twitter account.
Once you link your accounts, your Twitter account will be updated every time you post a public update to Facebook.
