Twitter and LinkedIn

Update – this information is now Null & Void – see Twitter & LinkedIn Separated

Twitter & LinkedIn are great conversation and relationship tools

Sharing similar conversations and ideas on both streams can be beneficial.

However, there are some tweets that have no business being displayed in the LinkedIn stream.

Tweets like:

“I am getting a mani-pedi tonight”

“Why is American Idol doing this tonight?”

“I’m getting pizza for the kids tongith”

Etc, etc.

So, how do you setup LinkedIn and twitter to share only the relevant tweets?

Unless you have added an App to Twitter or LinkedIn that controls this integration, it’s built into LinkedIn.

Click on your name in the upper right corner
Click on Settings

In the setting box, click on Manage your Twitter Settings

In the Twitter settings Box, review your options and make good choices based on your Twitter use and what your followers would be interested in seeing.

Here is how I set up my Twitter Settings on LinkedIn:

Again, make choices in your settings that are important to you and your followers.
