Tweet in Time with LinkedIn


A recent survey by the California Association of Realtors revealed LinkedIn as the favourite social network for its members. This week, there’s good news for LinkedIn fans who also use Twitter: LinkedIn has teamed up with Twitter to offer synchronised status updates – a move LinkedIn says will make both services more powerful.

LinkedIn users will now be able to tweet their status updates by ticking a box, and Twitter users can choose to send all their tweets to LinkedIn or select certain tweets by using the hashtags #li or #in.

The partnership has only just been announced, but mashable.com reports that these synchronised status updates are already extremely popular, with the number of users linking their Twitter and LinkedIn accounts rising to 200 per minute at one stage.

In this demonstration video, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone and LinkedIn CEO Reid Hoffman discuss the importance of their social networking tools for business and the potential benefits of the partnership:
