PSA: Automatic cross-posting of tweets to Facebook no longer works as of today

Posted by @audreylaine, Aug 2, 2018

You can no longer automatically cross-post your tweets to Facebook. Twitter announced yesterday that functionality is now coming to an end, and users will instead have to copy a tweet’s URL if they want to share a tweet to Facebook going forward. In a statement, the company attributed the change to a recent Facebook update.


I use a tool called Quuu Promote and they sent a letter saying it wasn’t just cross-posting, but all posts to Facebook profiles and that posting to pages would still work. It may depend on how they have written their code.

Haven’t heard directly from Hootsuite or Buffer.

Incidentally, Quuu Promote is a pretty interesting tool to get people to share your content, and Quuu for curating content. Interesting business model too since both sides pay and the content is all written by the people using Promote. They are just the service that allows it to happen.
