If you share a lot with family, friends, or colleagues on Facebook, it can be a pain to have to manually post updates to multiple social media platforms.

Luckily, you can connect your Twitter account to Facebook so that your Facebook posts appear on both sites simultaneously.

While the process of connecting your Twitter account to Facebook used to be possible via the Twitter website, changes to Facebook’s privacy laws have ended the ability to auto-post your tweets to your Facebook page.

However, you can still connect your accounts so that your Facebook status updates appear on your Twitter account. Here’s how to do it.

4. You will then be redirected back to Facebook, where your account connection will be confirmed. Here, you can confirm which Facebook features - status updates, photos, links, videos, etc. - are cross-posted to Twitter. Uncheck the boxes for any options you don't want to be cross-posted, then click "Save Changes."
