Starting today, you can no longer feed your tweets to LinkedIn to make it look like you are active on LinkedIn without actually visiting the world’s most boring social network. No more.

In its announcement, LinkedIn blames Twitter’s recent blog post that doesn’t make sense to non-developers. Whatever the reason, a whole lot of people are going to go inactive on LinkedIn as a result of this.

There are workarounds. My favorite is If This Then That, which I’ve just set to feed my Twitter updates to LinkedIn so I can continue the charade.
