Twitter, the online social networking service, will officially cut off all ties to the professional social networking website, LinkedIn. The two have been partners with one another since two thousand and nine.
Ryan Roslansky, the head of content products at LinkedIn shared the following post from his blog “As Twitter shared earlier today in a blog post from Michael Sippey, they are increasingly focused on “providing the core Twitter consumption experience through a consistent set of products and tools.” Consistent with Twitter’s evolving platform efforts, Tweets will no longer be displayed on LinkedIn starting later today. We know many of you value Twitter as an additional way to broadcast professional content beyond your LinkedIn connections. Moving forward, you will still be able to share your updates with your Twitter audience by posting them on LinkedIn.”
Although the two popular social networks will no longer coincide, users will still be able to share content with both ‘connections and followers‘ through the use of a “share” button. LinkedIn has made it clear this will be the one and only change for the time being.
