How To Update Your Facebook Status With Twitter

How To Update Your Facebook Status With Twitter

Would you like to be able to update your facebook status from your favorite Twitter program? Then let’s do it!

The inspiration?

Subject: How do I get my tweets from Twitter on Facebook?

“Dear Dan:  I noticed that you can update Facebook by posting on Twitter.  How did you get that to work?  Best, Julie”

Ok Julie, First Step, Log in to your facebook account.

Then, try this link to take you straight to the twitter application. If it has changed or doesn’t work, simply do a search from the facebook search box for” twitter” and choose the tab that says APPLICATION. You should see the twitter application listed like this:


Select VIEW APPLICATION and then from the Twitter application page select GO TO APPLICATION.

You will be asked to ALLOW ACCESS, do so!

Next, you will be asked to log in to your twitter account. Make it so. . . and you should see this:


Select the “Allow Twitter To Update Your Facebook Status” and then you have one more screen to go:


Allow the Status Update and your done! Twitter away with your favorite Twitter program and when you do, your facebook status will be updated.

A good first tweet? How about a link to this tutorial!

    Works like a charm!

    But is there a way to do the opposite, i.e. update Twitter with the Facebook status?

      Yes there is! I will do a full post on it soon.

    Heys, not sure if this help’s but no harm posting. Had problems with selective posting and account mixups. Found my solution with this guy’s tutorial:


    He details using this other app that helps post selectively only.

    However he says it doesn’t work if your twitter feed is on private/safe mode.

    Cheers and hope it helps!

    same problem here, there's definitely an issue with this app


    May 13, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    i had the same problem but that's because I had my twitter set to "private"… if you read the error/warning it tells you that it won'[t work unless your tweets are public… not sure that is your problem but it worked for me!

    Every time I do this I get the "redirecting you back to the application" screen which freezes. When I click the do-it-yourself link, I get "error #5" and the link is not created. I have Twitter listed as an app on Facebook, but cannot get them to link up.

    Since I use Facebook primarily I use Twitter-feed to update my Twitter status with my Facebook status. It's a totally different process from the one you described but achieves the same ends, only in reverse.

    Great article.
