Over the last three years, users of both Twitter and LinkedIn have benefited from a partnership between the two. After linking your accounts, either all or selected tweets could automatically appear on your LinkedIn feed, allowing you to easily integrate your content across both platforms.
However it’s been announced that this has come to an end.
Ryan Roslansky, Head of Content Products at LinkedIn, explains in an offical blog post.
“Consistent with Twitter’s evolving platform efforts, Tweets will no longer be displayed on LinkedIn starting later today,” he wrote. “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.”
So in other words… while you can still post from LinkedIn to Twitter, the reverse is no longer possible.
There has been some speculation as to why, and whether this is related to the recent LinkedIn hack. However I think this is unlikely. As Businessweek notes:
“Twitter has been increasing its focus on getting more users to look at tweets through its own website and on mobile applications, as it seeks to boost advertising revenue”.
Molly McHugh of Digital Trends wonders, however, whether this is a good move:
“The risk Twitter runs, of course, is alienating the developer community… Facebook has branded itself as a platform, as an app marketplace, and Twitter is certainly not creating this type of reputation for itself. Of course, you could reason that Twitter’s on a different, more profitable trajectory that will win it a more successful IPO — that’s one theory, at least. Early speculation says Twitter has figured out mobile ads and Facebook hasn’t… but it’s still early.”
“One thing is clear: Twitter won’t be following in Facebook’s business steps,” she added. “And it’s certainly not at the path to becoming a platform to encourage third-party apps. This means it can control how Twitter works and what it looks like to its users, and that is something advertisers are happy to hear. But it also means that it loses the support of a group of people that could end up driving traffic. That inarguably hurts innovation, something that’s always in the user’s best interest. It’s a money move — a gamble Twitter’s willing to take — but it remains to be seen whether it pays off, or if the team’s shooting itself in the foot.”
How will this affect the way you use either of these platforms?
You may have realised some time ago that Facebook automatically assigned you a facebook.com email address – which just sends your emails through to Messages – but chances are you’ve never used it.
Instead, most of us display our own preferred address on our profile so that friends (or rich Nigerian princes, depending on your privacy settings) are able to get in contact.
However Facebook has just rolled out changes that by default only display your Facebook email… and no, they didn’t tell you.

The internet is full of smartasses.
Most often they are harmless, and seemingly post simply for the sake of being funny and/or annoying. But the fact that people are out there, saying bad things about your product, on social media, on the internet, WHERE EVERYONE CAN SEE, is enough to send brands running.
Unfortunately it’s going to happen, both online and offline, and you can’t do anything about that. But how you manage your social community – and I mean both good and bad – can make all the difference.
Today we heard about this example from @smartcarsusa which, in my opinion, is example of community management done right. It’s fun, simple, and turns a negative comment completely on its head.
Since posting yesterday, the tweet has received
61 74 retweets and 31 40 favourites – and is climbing. The original poster, @adtothebone, has even graciously admitted he was “outsmarted by a smart car” with the “best. Social media respose. Ever”.
Some days, you just want to high five people across the internet.
We’re back with a new team member for you to meet! Daemon Jam have recently acquired a real life Lexi Space Ninja with the arrival of Lucie May. She came highly recommended by Daemon’s super creative Kylie McIntyre (which was our first concern). Luckily Lucie has fit right into the Daemon family and adds to the fun and laughter in the office (as well as occasionally doing a bit of account management). Her dedication to world domination started with an attempt to get the PM onside, which has seen Lucie recently copy Julia Gillard’s hair colour (yes she’s that dedicated). However despite this and her height we quite like her and we think you might like her, so here’s 2 minutes with Lucie May, enjoy:

What’s your greatest achievement?
When I was 8, I broke my arm twice in 6 weeks. So not falling over is a daily achievement for me. Oh and last night I won my first game of Scrabble. Jealous?

I’m not sure, but now I really feel like icecream. Thanks a lot.
If you could have lunch with anyone who would it be? What would you ask them?
I have no good answer for this, so here’s a bunny:
