Updating facebook status on twitter

Note: since Twitter has a 140 character limit, it will automatically truncate your post with an automatically created short URL (Example fb.me/XYC) that will link back to the original post on Facebook.

Note that you also have the option of undoing this link at anytime by visiting facebook.com/twitter.

This is not an application by a third-party, but the official Facebook / Twitter integration.

On this page, simply select the “unlink from Twitter” link next to the Twitter accounts you no longer wish to have associated with their respective Facebook pages.

There are tools out there that put Twitter's basic Web interface to shame -- let's take a look at a few clients to make posting messages on Facebook and Twitter quick and convenient.

To sustain this free service, we receive affiliate commissions via some of our links. We can help you take one element out of that equation by having your Facebook status updates automatically convert into tweets.

There have been some comments below from our readers on their first hand experience and efforts to link them, however we’ll be sure to update this post when the issue is officially fixed and working again.

Better yet, most tools allow you to post to additional platforms like Linkedin and Google plus too so you can kill more than two birds with one stone.

To get the URL for a specific post on social media sites, simply click the timestamp. Just click on the timestamp for any status update or comment.

Then you can grab its unique URL and use that link wherever you’d like – on your blog, in an email or on another social media platform (think cross-promotion). Let’s say I find this tweet and want to link to it for sharing. When I do, I’m taken to that tweet’s own page and I can grab the URL here and use it wherever I want. Clicking on the timestamp brings you here and then you can grab the URL.

But more importantly, we stay in touch with friends and family and share photos.

Twitter doesn't serve the same role: Though both are social networks, Twitter is about reaching out to an audience and sharing interesting information.

Frustrated at having to post a status update, tweet, and promote your blog post all at the same time?
