I’ve been ranting for months about how Linkedin is not Twitter. And just because I’m connected to you on Linkedin doesn’t mean I want to read your copious, not-my-main industry tweets! If I did, I would follow you on Twitter. (Please don’t take it personally.) I like both services, but each has its own purpose. The Linkedin experience was getting overrun by frequent tweeters and ruining the experience. Anyhow, that argument is now moot. Linkedin announced today that “Twitter recently evolved its strategy,” and Twitter feeds will no longer be displayed on LinkedIn. Hurray!
The two platforms can still work together, but only if you login to Linkedin to post the information, where you can choose to also share it with your Twitter audience. This is how it should have always worked.
This is also a good opportunity to remind you to SHARE MORE on Linkedin. Here are two videos that do that. One is 70’s nostalgia. The other is hot off the press from Linkedin!
Couldn’t agree more. Glad to see the end of those supposedly LinkedIn updates that just contained a tinyURL and not information whatsoever about the link!
