The suits at professional social network LinkedIn have shook hands on a deal with Twitter and just revealed a new way to sync updates between the two services. Want to ask an industry question over both networks in one fell swoop? Want to tell all your colleagues what you had for breakfast? Read on to find out how!
The new partnership between LinkedIn and Twitter allows you to sync your accounts, so that messages will go out over both, even from your favourite Twitter client. If for instance you’ve found an interesting article that affects your business or area, you can Twitter it and have it tweeted to your LinkedIn contacts too.
To set the LinkedIn Twitter syncing up, all you need to do is tick the Twitter box underneath your Networkd Updates bar on the LinkedIn homepage. The savvy though who like to keep a division between work and social life should set it up through Twitter, where you can specify that only tweets with an #in hashtag get put out on LinkedIn – instructions here.
The feature is rolling out across the LinkedIn network over the next few days, so if you don’t see it just yet, don’t worry, but keep a lookout for it appearing soon.
