LinkedIn And Twitter Play Well Together

Have you always wanted to sync up your Twitter and LinkedIn accounts? Well, now you can, thanks to a deal announced late yesterday by the two social networks. The deal makes it easy to send LinkedIn status updates to Twitter, and “Tweets” to your LinkedIn profile. You also have the option of only syncing certain content from each profile. The LinkedIn deal comes on the heals of deals with both Bing and Google, both announced several weeks ago.

In a video announcing the deal, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said, “The general idea of putting a little Twitter in everything, is being able to inject into LinkedIn a little bit more of this fresh, kind of here’s what’s going on with these other things, but with a little bit of curated sense in terms of your professional life…You want the widest possible distribution.”
