Selective Twitter Status Can Syndicate Tweets to Facebook Public Profiles

By Matt Holliday Comment

selectivetwitterstatusA new Facebook application called Selective Twitter Status by Andy Young, a computer science student at Oxford, is enabling public profile owners to syndicate their Twitter updates to their Facebook public profile automatically for the first time. This is a feature that many have been waiting on. Selective Twitter Status also works with personal profiles, too.

In addition to being able to update public profiles, Selective Twitter Status (as its name implies) also allows users to select which Tweets to syndicate to Facebook. If you’re using Twitter’s update syndication Facebook app, you know that every Tweet you post shows up on Facebook, which can cause some major clutter. It’s especially confusing to Facebook friends if you’re responding to Twitter users.

Now you can control which Tweets you want to make it to your Facebook page – just add “#fb” to the end of your Tweets to update your Facebook status.


Setup couldn’t be easier. Simply go to the application, choose either a Page/public profile you own (or your personal profile) and enter your Twitter user name. Make sure you turn off automatic updating from your Twitter account, or all your Tweets will still pop up on Facebook.

That’s it. You can now enjoy the convenience of syndicated posting without flooding your Facebook profile or public profile!
