How To: Optimize LinkedIn with Twitter

Twitter & LinkedIn

Twitter & LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a great social networking platform for businesses; it opens up numerous possibilities for potential partnerships and future ventures. Twitter, as we have already discussed, can be a very efficient tool for businesses as well.

In today’s post, we will be giving you tips on how to optimize your LinkedIn and Twitter accounts for your business.

1. Broadcast your LinkedIn statuses to Twitter. Your LinkedIn updates contain important and valuable information. Broadcasting these updates to your Twitter followers will add to your knowledge and help get the word out about what you’re doing. To push your LinkedIn status out to Twitter, click the check box next to the Twitter icon on your LinkedIn homepage, enter your update and click “Share.”

- Make sure you choose the hashtag option so only the tweets you decide to share will get through to your LinkedIn account.

2. Link multiple Twitter accounts to your LinkedIn profile. If you have more than one Twitter account, you probably have one account for personal tweets and others related to your business or job. Try to  integrate all your Twitter accounts with LinkedIn. Besides, if you send out a lot of work-related or topical items from your personal account, you may want your professional network to see these tweets. LinkedIn did not specify how many Twitter accounts you could add, or what kind of broadcasting controls it offers for integrating multiple accounts.

3. Install the Tweets application, the “Overview” tab on your homepage will allows you to see everyone you currently follow on Twitter, view their Twitter feed, and Tweet from your own account.

Hope you enjoyed our tips for the day.
