LinkedIn Ties Up with Twitter

LinkedIn and Twitter have announced an integration partnership that allows members to share status updates between their LinkedIn and Twitter accounts. The cross integration of the two networks through the Tweets app allows members of LinkedIn to automatically share their updates on the professional network with their Twitter followers. They can also select Twitter status updates to share with their LinkedIn network by adding the #in hashtag to tweets on the microblogging site. LinkedIn says the partnership with Twitter is the first of several integrations its members will see over the coming weeks.
The integration will allow members of LinkedIn to immediately increase the sharing of information and business insight across their wider professional network. LinkedIn members will be able to track and manage their Twitter feed from within their LinkedIn profile, making it easier to keep track of the latest news and conversations around their industry.
