Best way to link Twitter and Facebook

twitter birdI’ve looked at plenty of small little apps that let you in some way, shape or form tie your Facebook status with your Twitter updates.

Why do this? Mostly to save time and to get your message out to more people.

To start with, you must have both a Facebook and a Twitter account. The best way I have found to link the two is using Twitter to update Facebooks status. The problem I was having is that I didnt necessarily want ALL of my tweets being shunted to my Facebook page. Enter Selective Twitter Status.

Selective Twitter Status is a little Facebook app by Andy Young and is available here

It works by monitoring your tweets for anything with the hash tag #fb. When it finds one it farms that tweet out to your Facebook page.

All you have to do is add the application to your Facebook page, fill in your twitter log-in details and give it permission to post to your wall.

Thats it. Just put #fb at the end of the tweet you want to go to Facebook and it’s job done.
