Facebook users who have their accounts linked to Twitter said that their posts are no longer showing up on the microblogging site like they’re supposed to as of Thursday. The glitch appears to affect all types of content fed from Facebook to Twitter.
Yesterday, Facebook user Diti Mua posted the following complaint on the company’s Community Forum:
[quote type=”large” align=”left”] “Page updates not posting to my twitter account (has been working fine up until today) help!!” [/quote]
A handful of other users have also experienced this issue, with at least one user speculating that Facebook has done it on purpose (a helpful alternative: use HootSuite). If you’re experiencing this problem, you can check to see if your Facebook is still linked to your Twitter, but some have confirmed that the problem persists despite the link remaining intact, so the problem may indeed run deeper.
Not all Facebook users are experiencing this problem, and tweets from the microblogging site are still appearing on Facebook without incident, so the issue is likely Facebook’s alone. We’ll get back to you when we know more.
Are you having problems with the link between your Facebook and Twitter accounts?
Yes, neither of my fb pages are updating my posts to twitter. Glad to learn it isn't just me having the problem. Thanks.
Yes, mine has been down since 10th October! Grr. I've emailed FB help, hoping it will be resolved!
It seems to be on Facebook's end, hang in there guys and girls.
Mine hasn't been working. Glad I'm not alone… but I didn't think much about it except for now my public posts can be longer than 140 characters.
Look forward to a resolution on this issue. Please keep us posted.
Been down for a while for me… @FalconFour and my (linked) Facebook profile.
My Facebook page posting to Twitter has not been working since October 10th.
Yeah, lots of these things seem to be deliberately happening. Lately it also seems FB is able to put individual pages at risk for all kinds of things, posts, comments, link to other accounts. Geez.
Mine has been having problems also. Will have to look into that
Yes haven't been linked in since Friday 12th – any news on this? Why is it only some people?
same here… my last successful link was on Oct. 10
