Stuff we write about

The LinkedIn and Twitter integration continues….

LinkedIn and Twitter have gone even further together.  LinkedIn is almost a fully functioning Twitter Client.

The functionality on LinkedIn and its ‘Tweets’ platform, now means that you can manage most (if not all) of your Twitter activity within the LinkedIn site.  Great for people like me who just don’t have time to check all of them, but are on LinkedIn daily (if not more).

If you already have the ‘Tweets’ application on LinkedIn, great.  If not, just go to the Applications directory and install it or click here.  Once you have, on the main ‘Tweets’ window, you will see there are 4 tabs, Overview, Connections, My Tweets and Settings.

The Overview tab allows you to see all of the people you are currently following on Twitter, see their feed, and also Tweet yourself (as opposed to doing it as your Network Update and feeding it through to Twitter).  You can also now see ‘Connections to follow’ giving you recommendations of other people to follow based on your connections within LinkedIn (as long as they have their Twitter accounts linked to their LinkedIn profiles.)  You can also see the Twitter information for any of your connections, follow or unfollow them, and even see a snippet  of their last activity by hovering over their Twitter ID.

On the Connections tab you can see all of your LinkedIn connections who are on Twitter,  and there is a great option to save your connections on LinkedIn as a dynamic Twitter list. LinkedIn will create a private Twitter list for all of your LinkedIn connections that have added Twitter accounts, and the best bit is that LinkedIn will keep this list up-to-date for you, adding and removing Twitter accounts to the list daily based on your LinkedIn connections.

Cool huh?!
