How To Post Facebook Updates to Twitter Automatically

If you’re promoting posts on your blog to fans of your Facebook page, it can be annoying to have to open Twitter just to post the same content again. Here’s how to send your Facebook posts automatically to Twitter and save time in the process.

We’ve covered other services and apps that will get the same posts around on social networks like Google+, Facebook, and Twitter. But the this method is built into Facebook, and all you need to do is enable it.

Facebook Posts to Twitter

This is not limited to Facebook pages. You can also link your personal Facebook page to your Twitter account. Also, make sure you’re logged in to your Twitter account for this to work.

Start by going to this link and you’ll arrive at the following page. If you want to link your personal account to Twitter, click the green “Link my Profile to Twitter” button. Or choose the “Link a page to Twitter” option.

You’ll get a list including your profile and the pages you’re currently managing. Click the Link to Twitter button next to each one you want to link up.

One more thing that needs to be done now. Scroll down until you find the page you linked and select the updates you want posted to Twitter. For instance, maybe you want to post status updates and photos, but not events.

    Dear Bogdan,

    Thanks for your help linking my Facebook Posts to my twitter Tweets. I did a post on facebook last night with a couple of pictures and although the post is shown as a tweet on Twitter, the pictures have not carried over. How do I fix this?
