Here is news of dismay for the people who are addicts to social networking sites as according to the today’s update, Twitter in no more syncing automatically with the LinkedIn accounts. Ryan Roslansky, the Head of Content Products, LinkedIn wrote in a blog post that as an ingredient of the “evolving platform efforts” of Twitter, its tweets are no more going to be seen on LinkedIn. This brings the end of the partnership between the two social networking sites which lasted two and half years. Earlier, the users had a facility to have all tweets and the one’s tagged with “#in” or “#li”, navigated to their LinkedIn pages.
Michael Sippey, runner of consumer product team, Twitter wrote a post regarding the changes being made by Twitter and he wrote saying that the company wishes to “build engaging experiences into Twitter” and allow “developers to be able to build applications that run within Tweets.” This action is likely to be the latest action taken by Twitter to get its users accompanied to the network as it does not want its users to use the site as a portal to content on the internet.
Actually, there is a text-only service in which Twitter has enabled its users to insert content such as video and photo from other websites. Twitter has come up with its latest execution named as the Twitter Cards which will display photos, news headlines, bylines and teaser blurbs as well as several other contents in the internet. However, some developers are happy and some are not too as many are visualizing this latest change made by a firm or site which has an unstable history in terms of third party apps.
Aaron White, a developer wrote saying “I’m done developing for Twitter…They’ve demonstrated not once to me, but twice, that they have no desire to work with developers, but rather antagonize them as they see fit.” Hence, Linkedin users need not worry as content is not going to sit idle when Twitter is making changes as Linkedin suggests its users to transfer their kind of functioning. In the blog post of Linkedin he wrote “Moving forward, you will still be able to share your updates with your Twitter audience by posting them on LinkedIn.”
