How to Get Twitter Tweets to My Facebook

Social networking is a popular way to keep in touch with friends, promote your business, keep up with breaking news or connect to like-minded individuals across the globe. It can be time-consuming and inconvenient, however, to manage multiple social media accounts. Facebook and Twitter have teamed up to allow you to link your accounts. By enabling this feature through Facebook's Twitter application, your tweets automatically become your Facebook status. You can also utilize the Selective Tweets application, which allows you to choose which tweets are sent to Facebook.
