Twitter on your LinkedIn? Ooohhh wait a minute.
The hope is that LinkedIn users will tweet info to Twitter and vice versa. Some people really shouldn’t do this…and you know who you are! The other people should take a minute and think about it. Your employer may not always be able to find you on Twitter but now they will. Our 15 minutes of fame is now lasting a lot longer.
Understand, if you don’t do this right, every single tweet will update your status on LinkedIn!
You also have two additional options of installing a Twitter box and a Company Buzz box on your LinkedIn profile.
If you opt to turn on the STATUS feature remember to do this:
Twitter to LinkedIn – Log into LinkedIn
- Click on Profile
- Click on Edit Profile
- In the Twitter section click on Edit and check off “Share only tweets that contain #in”
(Only the hashtag tweets of #in or #li will go to Linked status)
LinkedIn to Twitter – Log into LinkedIn
- Click on Home
- Update your status and if you want it to feed to Twitter, check the Twitter box
This can be a great business tool as long as you remember to keep your eye on the birdie! Check out the details on LinkedIn Learn and let me know if you have any questions.
