Tweets not posting on Facebook? Here’s the fix.

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Send a tweet.
  3. Check the “Facebook Profile” box. Again, if necessary, refresh the page to ensure the box is checked.
  4. 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?
