Twitter says Bye Bye to LinkedIn Integration
As of 30th June, 2012, you will no longer be able to sync your tweets to your LinkedIn profile. In a blog post, LinkedIn explained that it will turn off its tweet stream, which has been available for the past two-and-a-half years, as a result of “Twitter’s evolving platform efforts.” A post from Twitter re-emphasized something it had said over a year ago that it would not look fondly upon developers who use Twitter’s APIs to “build client apps that mimic or reproduce the mainstream Twitter consumer client experience.” Back then, the post led to concerns that Twitter was about to immediately cut off 3rd party apps.
From LinkedIn’s Post, Moving forward, you will still be able to share your updates with your Twitter audience by posting them on LinkedIn.
How can I continue to share updates on both LinkedIn and Twitter?
Initiate the conversation on LinkedIn. Simply compose your update, check the box with the Twitter icon, and click “Share.” This will automatically push your update to both your LinkedIn connections and your Twitter followers just as you’ve been able to do previously.
What changes can I expect to see on LinkedIn?
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.
Professional conversations are happening every day on LinkedIn, and we encourage you to take part in these dialogues. If you have any further questions about what this means for your synced LinkedIn and Twitter accounts
