LinkedIn Quick Tip: Follow LinkedIn Connections on Twitter

By Kristin Burnham, CIO |  Internet, LinkedIn, Twitter

Improving on its Twitter integration feature that it announced last November, LinkedIn has unveiled several updates that make it easier to find and keep track of your LinkedIn connections on both LinkedIn and Twitter.

This newly added feature was one of LinkedIn's most common requests from users, says, Adam Nash, vice president of search and platform products at LinkedIn.

Here's what you need to know about the application and how to install it.

How to Install the Tweets Application

Log into your LinkedIn account and choose "More..." from the LinkedIn navigation bar. Click "Application Directory" and search for the "Tweets" application. Click "Add application."

When the application is downloaded, you'll be brought to your Tweets Overview page. (To access this page at any other time, click "More..." from the navigation bar and choose "Tweets.")

Maneuvering the New Tweets Application

The "Overview" tab displays tweets from the accounts you follow. You can also view a feed based on the Twitter lists you've compiled. You can update your Twitter status from this page, and choose to share it with your LinkedIn connections.

The "Connections" tab displays your LinkedIn connections who have added their Twitter user names to their profiles.

From this tab, you can sort your connections by those you're following or by those you're not following. You also have the option to create a new, private Twitter list exclusively for your LinkedIn connections who have added their Twitter accounts to their profiles. This list won't be visible to anyone else.

Reviewing Your Privacy Settings

When you add the Tweets application to your LinkedIn account, be sure to review your privacy settings. The Settings tab in the Tweets application outlines your privacy settings. You can choose to display all of your tweets on your LinkedIn profile, or choose to display only the tweets that you have assigned with the #in tag.
