Allowing your Twitter world and your Facebook world to connect and collide is a good idea. Yet, it’s not a good idea to annoy your Facebook fans with constant tweets. After all, Twitter is not the same as Facebook, and while a tweet every five minutes on Twitter may be expected, this is not the case when it comes to Facebook. Prior to the Tweets to Pages Facebook app, there was no way to share Twitter news with your Facebook followers without being bothersome.
Now that Tweets to Pages exists, letting your Facebook fans seen what’s happening on your Twitter pages is simple and unobtrusive. Tweets to Pages is a free Facebook app that only takes a minute to set up. This app is well worth taking a look at if you have both a Twitter and Facebook account. Here’s what you can use Tweets to Pages for.
How Tweets to Pages Works
Tweets to Pages sets up a tab on your Facebook page. If your fans want to see what you’re tweeting, they can access this page quickly and simply. Since Tweets to Pages arranges a separate tab for your tweets, your tweets will not be displayed in your Facebook feed. The result is a tab that lets people see what you’re doing on Twitter without sending out constant tweets to all of your Facebook fans.
Another great feature from Tweets to Pages is that you can personalize the number of tweets that you want your fans to see. If you send out hundreds of tweets per day, you may not want your Facebook fans to see all of these tweets. So, you can set your tweet count to thirty or forty tweets instead of displaying hundreds of tweets at once.
Why Tweets to Pages is a Good Idea
Not only is it a good idea to share your tweets with your Facebook fans, it’s also a great way to make sure that your tweets count. If you send out tweets that are nonsensical and useless, your Facebook fans won’t be interested in these updates. If, on the other hand, you make sure that your tweets are unique and interesting to read, you’ll find that lots of your Facebook fans pay attention to your tweets.
Tweets to Pages also provides you with a great way to network. If you have a few Facebook fans who aren’t following you on Twitter (or who don’t have Twitter accounts), these people may begin to follow you after reading your tweets on Facebook. Not only is this app a great idea, but it’s also very easy to set up the Tweets to Pages app.
After you visit the app page, you will be asked to enter your Twitter name and your phone number (do not enter your cell phone number for security reasons). Then, select the number of tweets that you want to display.
Once that’s done, your Facebook page will be updated with the new Twitter app. Your tweets should be displayed as soon as you set up this app. If you have any problems, you can contact the app developers with questions.
There is a paid version of Tweets to Pages that allows you to display more tweets. However, this reviewer has found that the free version of the app works perfectly.
