You’ll be Able to Update Twitter from Facebook Soon!

It’s been years that people imploring Facebook to take on the friend and follower mode. It is not until today when Facebook finally rolled this feature out. Well, the disposition of this feature was always there, but in blurry way, now it is a feature. The documentation released by Facebook states something thing really fascinating: “soon, you’ll be able to update Twitter from Facebook.”

The point number 14 in the document clearly announces:

14. Can I update my Twitter followers from Facebook?

Yes, soon you’ll be able to update your Twitter account directly from Facebook. To get started:

1) Go to facebook.com/twitter

2) Link your profile or Page to your Twitter account

Once you link your accounts, your Twitter account will be updated every time you post a public update to Facebook. Note: Only posts whose privacy you set to Public using your inline controls are eligible for this.

There are certain interesting facts to be considered here. Firstly, as long as you have been able to use this feature from a Page, Facebook tried not to do it with actual Profiles. This is persisted to both the categories.

Secondly, Facebook was caught testing this feature two years ago for profiles. At that particular time, Facebook told that the feature was made available within a week, but it never launched. Perhaps, Facebook had some concerns with our posts, or may have had something to with privacy concerns. Today, when it has become easier to comprehend public versus private sharing, Facebook might have no concerns over it.

Both Twitter and Facebook don’t enjoy a healthy relationship. We have so many instances showing the nature of their rivalry intentions, where one company tries to do anything and other just simply blocks it.

It is still too early to say how Twitter will respond to this. Many of you may think that Twitter may not have any concern over this. The implementation of this feature means more and more people use Facebook as their major mean to Tweet that may not please Twitter. We will see.
