How to Connect Twitter with Facebook

by Extreme John on July 19, 2009

I usually try to stay away from articles like this because I make the mistake of assuming that everyone MUST already know how to connect Twitter with Facebook, as if everyone reads the same information all the time. Needless to say I know this has been written probably a thousand times before, I decided to write it for my site because I have friends and family that constantly ask me how to connect their Facebook with Twitter.
There are probably people that are new to Facebook or Twitter reading this article and there are probably even a few people reading this aticle that don’t even understand what I mean when I say “Connect Facebook to Twitter”.

By connecting your Facebook and Twitter accounts you can do your status updates right in Twitter and have them appear on your Facebook account without worrying about posting updates on your Facebook account as well, pretty convenient huh?

Twitter makes injecting your Twitter status updates into Facebook very easy with a convenient application or “app“, for use with Facebook.

The Twitter Facebook app to combine your status updates into one by using your Twitter account is not some strange third party software that you have to install. It’s something as simple as logging into your Facebook account or clicking on the Twitter Facebook application link below which will take you right to the application page on Facebook.

Getting your Facebook and Twitter account is as simple as two easy steps, well three if you count clicking on my Twitter Facebook application link to get over to the proper Facebook application area.

Step 2: Give permission

Twitter is going to ask you for permission to grant access from Facebook to grab your tweets (status updates) and make them visible on your Facebook wall. You can always revoke this access by removing the application by editing your applications in Facebook.
