New Add your Twitter account to LinkedIn

We just got this tip in that all you twitter addicted users out there can now add your twitter feed to LinkedIn. We just saw a preview of the new LinkedIn BlackBerry app the other day so this would be kind of cool but do you really want everything you say on twitter on your LinkedIn profile? Let us know what you think in the comments section. Thanks to Ray for sending in this tip.

  1. I would think not…since LinkedIn is supossed to be a Place where prostpect employers view your profile and use to get referals and other business related information, it professional.

    where as, those who use Twitter is more of a social network! Unless one is going to sensor themselves to speak professional and not just a bunch of jib jab that may risk a possible job opportunity!!!!

    I would not link my LinkedIn and Twitter Account, Not that I say anything on my twitter that an prospect employer may grin at, it just not applicable to the professional world!!!!!

    • Isn’t that the point of the hashtag feature though? It allows you to be selective when choosing which tweets are appropriate for Linkedin. Its not an auto feed of all tweets on your Linkedin profile. If you tweet about a project or accomplishment at work, I think its a great feature to simplify the sharing process!

  2. Still not seeing why anyone would want to combine linkedin and twitter…

    This seems possibly damaging and even if not, pointless…

  3. My thought was that twitter is a fast way to communicate but I am sure you always tend to speak your mind in twitter VS. LinkedIn is more of a professional site. I don’t know if I would connect them either.

  4. some people use their twitters for client use – i subscribe to a number of such people whose blogs i also follow so i think it’s just an optional branding thing for those who need it. also i never got into linkedin so i have the opposite concern.
