Sometime after 8:31pm PST on 7 February, tweets from my Twitter account stopped automatically posting to
Facebook. Nothing seemed to have changed, so trying to fix the problem was
troublesome. I finally figured it out, so here are step-by-step instructions on
getting your tweets back onto Facebook:
- Go to the Twitter app page on Facebook. If you have previously allowed Twitter to paste to your Wall, you’ll see a checkbox next to “Facebook Profile”. Uncheck it. If the little spinny circle doesn’t go away, refresh the page and ensure it’s unchecked.
- Send a tweet.
- Check the “Facebook Profile” box. Again, if necessary, refresh the page to ensure the box is checked.
- Send another tweet. This tweet (but not the previous one) should show up on Facebook.
Update for 15 February: It would appear that things have gone south again
and these instructions no longer work. I’ll try to figure out another solution.
Update for 16 February: It would appear that things have got back to their
“normal” state of breaking and working again, so these instructions should
work! Isn’t Facebook fun?
