LinkedIn and Twitter announced a partnership on Monday that will allow you to tweet your LinkedIn status or stream your tweets to your LinkedIn profile. Twitter cofounder Biz Stone called called this "bringing the peanut butter and the chocolate together to make the perfect combination."
This partnership cuts down on your time spent visiting multiple sites to post status updates and allows you to reach a broader audience. Have a question about open source? Now both your LinkedIn connections and Twitter followers can weigh in at once.
Do be wary of your two audiences, though. Remember that LinkedIn is a professional network, so share your tweets accordingly.
This feature will roll out to everyone over the next few days, so you may not see the feature immediately. Here's how it works.
- How to Add Twitter to Your LinkedIn Profile
