Twitter and LinkedIn sittin in a tree…

If you haven’t already heard, LinkedIn and Twitter are in loooovve.  You can now update Twitter from LinkedIn and LinkedIn from Twitter and we are all one big happy family Kumbaya!

It’s really easy to get set up.  I say that but I’ve still been having some trouble getting it to work.  So don’t fret.  But all you have to do is go to your LinkedIn profile, add your Twitter name and Allow Access.  Then go to Twitter and just add the #in or #li hashtag to whatever you want to send to LinkedIn.  I made a short video.  We were able to get it to work with my granddaughter’s account but not mine.  So far LinkedIn customer service has not been super responsive. I’ll keep you posted.

Just a note, make sure you aren’t updating your LinkedIn status for every tweet.  That’s just annoying.  Update your status whenever you have something meaningful that you want your LinkedIn group to know.  And Link up with me!  http://www.LinkedIn.com/in/GrandmaMary
