LinkedIn Severs its Link from Twitter

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.

    And posting twits to LinkedIn matters why? If you want to let your grandma know you’re alive, call her.

    What exactly is the point of LinkedIn?

    People “friend” me on it, and that’s pretty much all I understand about it. I’m not even trying to be flip, I just don’t get it.
