On Friday Twitter announced that it had ended its syndication deal with LinkedIn, which previously allowed people on Twitter to link their tweets with LinkedIn’s news stream.
The addition of an #in hashtag was an easy and effective way to edit tweets into LinkedIn to a more ‘professional’ social network without alienating that network with every tweet, er, ‘tweeted’. But with Twitter’s recently added features such as threaded conversations and expandable tweets not showing up on users’ LinkedIn pages, Twitter decided to pull the plug.
However, you can still link your tweets to LinkedIn using the same #in hashtag if you do this…
… Go to the San Francisco-based (and wonderful) IFTTT where you can sync to all types of networks by setting up ‘recipes’, one of which links TWitter to LinkedIn.
