Adding tweets to Facebook

I made this post to help my cousin’s wife, who has accounts on Twitter and Facebook. She wants to make her tweets “visible” on Facebook, like me. If you want your tweets to be visible on Facebook, follow me and I’ll show you the way.

1. Go to this page or copypaste the link: http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=2231777543

2. You will see a button with the words “Go to Application” Click on it.

3. You will be greeted with an “Allow Access” prompt. Click on “Allow”, because you won’t engage in those acts.

4. You will be greeted with a login page. Fill out “the details”, then click on “Log In”. If you don’t have an account on Twitter, then click on “Sign up for a Twitter account…”

Now, you can post tweets from Facebook. However, you have the option of allowing Twitter to update your Facebook Status. If you don’t want to share your tweets with your connections on Facebook, then don’t proceed with the following steps. If you want to share your tweets with your connections on Facebook, then proceed with caution.

5. Click on “Allow Twitter to Update Your Facebook Status”, it will send you to this page below.

If you operate a Facebook Page, this will be shown. If you want to update your Facebook Status via Twitter, then leave it as it is. If you want to update the Facebook Status of your page, then click on the triangle, then select the desired page. Once you’re done with that, click on “Allow Status Updates”

If you do not operate a Facebook page, then ignore the last paragraph and click on “Allow Status Updates”.

[Add cheesy line that has something to do with tweeting on Facebook]

(Note: Your tweets can be read by anyone on Facebook. [It means that you can’t set your tweets to friends only, co-workers only, etc.])

Update: this may not work if your tweets are protected. For you to un-protect your tweets, go to http://twitter.com/settings/account and scroll down to “Tweet Privacy”. (If the box to its right is checked, please click on it. If not, you’re just wasting your time.)

Note: This guide is rendered obsolete due to unforeseen changes in the said site. Instead, you will have to connect your Facebook and Twitter accounts on that page. Then it will search for your Facebook friends that have Twitter (this function doesn’t work – for now).
