DIGITAL MARKETING NEWS: Twitter and LinkedIn share status updates

LinkedIn and Twitter have joined forces to allow members to share status updates between their accounts and keep track of the latest news and conversations around their industries.

The Tweets app will allow LinkedIn's 51 million professional members to automatically share their updates on the professional network with their Twitter followers.

Users will also be able to select Twitter status updates to share with their LinkedIn network by adding the #in hashtag to tweets on the microblogging site.

This partnership with Twitter is the first of several integrations LinkedIn members will see over the coming weeks.

The integration will allow members of LinkedIn to immediately increase the sharing of information and business insight across their wider professional network.

LinkedIn members will be able to track and manage their Twitter feed from within their LinkedIn profile making it easier to keep track of the latest news and conversations around their industry.

The new feature will be available to all LinkedIn members worldwide in the coming days.
