LinkedIn has just announced a change to its Twitter app, coming at the end of January. Beginning in February, there will no longer be a standalone LinkedIn app – though you may still go to your settings and choose to send all tweets, or tweets with “#in” to your Twitter account.
Here’s how the company describes it:
Update About the Tweets Application on LinkedIn
We wanted to let you know about a change coming soon to the Tweets Application on LinkedIn.
1. First, we are not eliminating the ability to send updates between your Twitter and LinkedIn accounts. You can still go to your Settings page and choose to send either all tweets or only tweets with a #in hashtag to your LinkedIn status updates. It’s up to you. Again, tweets imported from Twitter into the LinkedIn network updates stream will not be affected.
If you haven’t yet joined your Twitter and LinkedIn accounts, here’s how you do it.
2. At the end of January, however, we will not be supporting the standalone Tweets Application on LinkedIn (see image), that displays tweets from everyone you follow on Twitter on your LinkedIn homepage. As of January 31st, this module will no longer be available.
