How to link your facebook page to twitter in 3 easy steps

Why link ??

Ok so the first question is why would you do this?

Facebook and Twitter, of course, represent two of the biggest and most important social networks on the Internet. And many people use both because they do different things. Facebook is a comprehensive social network where you tend to share more details and personal data with friends on their profiles. It also features like photo albums, create events and use applications, including games and quizzes.

Twitter, on the other hand, has a simpler layout and narrower focus. Twitter users share information in quick nuggets that can only extend to at most 140 characters. You can also sign up to “follow” other users. So, when you log in, you’ll see a list of the latest “tweets” from all the people you follow. This format and length constraint allows for users to see at a glance many short bits of information from their friends or favorite celebrities and public figures.

Although Facebook and Twitter have very different functions, you can see how they can overlap. People who have accounts with both networks may have information that they want to quickly share across both platforms. Instead of logging into both networks and plugging in the same information twice, you can opt to link your two accounts. Linking them would allow you to post information on one platform while automatically posting the same information on the other.
