How To Update Your Twitter Status from Facebook

How To Update Your Twitter Status from Facebook

I have already addressed how to update your Facebook status from Twitter, but in the comments I was asked if you could do the opposite – update Twitter from Facebook. Yes You can!

There is a Facebook application called fb2twitter that will automate the process. The application is not fool-proof but it commands a pretty decent user feedback rating. Read up on the user comments if you have any issues.

Here’s another way to do it:

Log into Facebook.

Click this link: http://www.new.facebook.com/minifeed.php?filter=11

You should get a page that looks like this:

facebook-feed1

On the bottom right-hand side you will see Subscribe to these Stories:

facebook-feed2

You want to save the address under My Status. That’s the RSS feed information we are going to give to TwitterFeed. So right click on My Status and copy the URL or click My Status and save the URL address from your browser.

Mine looks like this:

http://www.new.facebook.com/feeds/status.php?id=709745864&viewer=709745864&key=6673382bb3&format=rss20

Now head over to TwitterFeed and create an account or login (I just used my Google account information to sign in.).

Once signed in to TwitterFeed, create a new feed and you’ll get this screen:

twitterfeed

Username and Password? Whatever you use to log into Twitter.

RSS Feed URL? That’s the address we got from Facebook.

Update Frequency? 20 minutes? 60 minutes? How often do you update Facebook?

Prefix each tweet with? Maybe “Via Facebook” or just leave it blank!

    Thanks for this post. Been looking everywhere for a proper way to do this. The official Twitter app on facebook doesn't even do it.

    With the new interface, you have to go to your notifications to subscribe to your feed, then in the URL, change the word from notification to status.

    Here's mine.

    This doesn't work either. I've changed notifications to status, to minifeed, I've taken out feeds as well and tried a few options.

    Cheers. Worked for me.
    From your home page, click the Notifications tab and select 'see all notifications'.
    Click 'Via RSS' next to Subscribe at the top.
    In the address bar change notifications to status.
