Post Facebook to Twitter Using These Steps :

1. Login to Facebook

  7. pamela says:

    I have always connected my facebook posts to twitter (and the reverse) since it was an option. Randomly, my facebook STOPPED posting to twitter a couple of days ago. I have gone in and ‘unlinked’, re booted my computer, re LINKED… a couple of times (yesterday AND today). All the settings are correct. My facebook posts STILL are not posting to twitter. However my TWEETS ARE posting to facebook. Is there a technical problem that will be corrected? I have a super techie friend who is having the same issues. Help?

  8. Martin says:

    I have used this on 6 FB pages to 6 Twitter accounts and it has worked great. But it stopped working 3 day ago. I wrote a bug report to Facebook, but havent heard or seen any fix to it yet.
    Is anybody else having the problems that no status updates are getting through to Twitter?

    I have tried to relink my profiles. No success…

  9. Kyle says:

    not working :(

    I followed the instructions but my facebook posts wont sent to twitter, any ideas why?



    • Mary Ann says:

      I too followed the instructions and instead of Facebook posts going to Twitter, Twitter tweets went to Facebook which is what I had before. Grrrrrr!

      • says:

        Hi MaryAnn, Thanks for your post. Double check that the app that is posting from Twitter to Facebook is disabled or deleted in both Twitter and Facebook. Sounds like it might still be posting from Twitter.

  10. says:

    Update: the recent problems with the app appear to have been resolved.

    Thank you very much

  12. Lea says:

    Hi there – this is great, and I have a couple of accounts connected and it works well.
    Any chance you could write the same functionality for Diaspora? That would be gnarly :)


  13. steve says:

    hi, i’m managing a page which i also got it connected to twitter, but eventually it seems that it also connected my personal facebook account to my page’s twitter account. i then make my personal facebook to be separated from the facebook page account, but still the facebook 2 twitter was intact to the facebook page’s twitter account. i tried to unlink dozens of times but everytime i go through the steps, in the end the twitter connected was still the facebook page’s twitter account. Any solution to this please?

  14. Shane Hood says:

    Is there any way to unlink the Twitter account and link a different Twitter account? When I unlink the old Twitter account in Facebook and then try to link to the new Twitter account it only gives me the option to link to my old Twitter account.

    thank you in advance


    • says:

      Hi Shane,
      Try deleting permission for the app in Facebook. Then log into the new Twitter account that you want to connect and try again.

    • Gustavo says:

      After you unlink, open other tab and go to and do a logoff, else it will link to the active twitter account. Then you can login in your new twitter account, or just click on Link on facebook/twitter page :)

      • Meena says:

        Read your simple instructions that even I thought (since I’m not too techy)… I really hope you can help with this… not sure how to get only our In Awe Foundation Facebook page and the Twitter foundation pages and the LinkedIn foundation pages to be linked on my iPhone4 and also have them syched with the HootSuite app. Thanks a lot for your assistance!!!

  15. Andrea says:

    I tried this but it’s not working. I updated my facebook status and they didin’t post to twitter. I don’t want my tweets to post to facebook, though (’cause my tweets are all from weheartit and tumblr, and it’s just going to hog my page) so I didn’t select that option.

  16. Queen Anne says:

    I cant connect :(

    Hi. I have problems with posting to Twitter, it doesn’t work for one campaign I manage while it works for other. I did everything that is described here. Please notify me about the bug and how to solve the problem.

  47. mike says:

    Cool. Had forgotten how to go about doing this. It would be cool if there was an option to include default text since we sometimes post photos without titles.

    Thank you. Its work well.

  56. Thanks for the great help. i was searching for this to connect my facebook page with twitter. It works well.

  57. Kurt says:

    Thank you for the concise, helpful information. Can I ask a follow up question? My posts on FB often consist of a photo, onto which I’ve photoshopped some text, or a photo alone with a “comment” above in the FB post. However, after linking the accounts per your instructions, I notice that when the link appears on Twitter is only has the comments and a hypertext link to the photo. Is there any way to get the photo itself to automatically appear in the Twitter feed along with the comments rather than just a link? Obviously, the links aren’t as visually appealing as the photos themselves. Thank you.

  58. thanks a lot, that was helpful

    Once I got passed the “but that’s my personal page!” objection and saw that later in the process I could share my business page then unshare my personal page, all was fine.
    Many thanks!

    Hello, have twitteraccount x that sends to my fb page. On my fb page I have linked a twitteraccount y. The idea is that tweets from x are posted on fb and from fb to the twitter-y account. This shoudl work…but it doesn’t.

    The only thing that does work is type in statusupdate in fb and it shows in the twitter-y account. But not if I do it from the twitter-x account. Please advice

  64. Cheyenne says:

    THANK YOU!!! I am closing on FB page & started a new one but, couldn’t remember how the heck I had linked it to Twitter lol. Now, I’ve got it sorted & unlinked the old one & linked the new one. Most posts seem to be about linking the opposite way but, I find most of my followers are totally unimpressed with seeing tweets on FB so, again I thank you

    Kindest wishes,
    Cheyenne Christine

  65. Lisa says:

    Our FB to Twitter was working just fine until a few days ago. Now only some posts make it to twitter. Nothing with links from other pages within FB or outside links from WordPress or Amazon will post once they hit FB they don’t go to Twitter. I’ve tried the suggestions above and confirmed posts show “public”. Any ideas?

    pictures i post on FB appears as a link on twitter even after i followed your earlier suggestions … can you help ??

    i have a FB page “eclatlife” and a twitter account wit the same name.

    • Bigfin says:

      Hi LAAJ,
      The only way we’ve found to make an image display in a tweet is by manually adding the image using “Add Photo”. Otherwise your image will display as a link in your tweet.
