This morning I received a message from LinkedIn that says, “Starting today, Tweets will no longer be displayed on LinkedIn.” Why? “Twitter recently evolved its strategy and this will result in a change to the way Tweets appear in third-party applications.” Here’s more:
We know that sharing updates from LinkedIn to Twitter is a valuable service for our members. Moving forward, you will still be able to share updates with your Twitter audience by posting them on LinkedIn.
How can I continue to share updates on both LinkedIn and Twitter?
Simply start your conversation on LinkedIn. 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 before.
What changes can I expect to see on LinkedIn?
Any conversation you start on Twitter will no longer be automatically shared with your LinkedIn network, even if you synced your LinkedIn and Twitter accounts.
How are you dealing with this? Any ideas?
