LinkedIn Works With Twitter

LinkedIn announced today on their new partnership with Twitter. With this new partnership we get two new ways to integrate Twitter with LinkedIn. The first is LinkedIn will now allow you to tweet your LinkedIn status to Twitter. The second way, Twitter will now allow you to post your tweets from Twitter to LinkedIn. This new feature is being rolled out over the next couple of days and is currently causing some outages with LinkedIn throughout the day.

Here is a look at the new LinkedIn status update.

Twitter will provide the ability to either share all of your tweets to your LinkedIn account or allow you to add the hashtag #in to individual tweets to post specific tweets to LinkedIn.

Using Twibbon for Branding

I was doing a little research today and stumbled across the Search Mojo Twibbon page. A light bulb went off when I reached the page. Twibbon is not only a service to support a cause, but can be used for company branding. Search Mojo created their own Twibbon using their company logo and had their employees use the Twibbon for branding purposes. If you brand is not Starbucks or T-Mobile, you can encourage your employees to "support" the company with a company branded Twibbon.
If you currently do not have a Twibbon made for your company because there are only two employees, think again. These Twibbon pages are showing up for company names and can assist in Reputation Management for your brand.

Twitter Threaded Conversations

I ventured over to the Twitter search page today and noticed that a new featured pop up, Threaded Conversations. Twitter search now provides the ability to show and hide the conversation thread. I really like this feature and I wish they would bring this to the regular Twitter profile. Here is a quick screen shot of the feature.
