I want to tell you, there is a way so that the tweets that we post on Twitter can also be posted on Facebook status automatically.
So, we don’t have to bother copying tweets on Twitter to Facebook status anymore.
How to? The trick is to connect Twitter with Facebook.

Can You Still Connect Twitter to Facebook?
In the past, Twitter and Facebook could be connected very easily. There is an official feature for this. We can even set it in the Facebook or Twitter settings section.
This feature makes it easier for us in many ways when we are active on social media. One of them, we can post the same thing on both platforms at once, without the need to copy and post again manually.
But unfortunately, this feature is now no longer available, allegedly due to a data misuse case that hit Facebook some time ago.
From there, Facebook then updated its Platform Policy and removed this connection with Twitter.
In the past, we could activate this feature on the https://www.facebook.com/Twitter/ page. But now, if the page is opened, it will be redirected to the official Twitter profile page to https://www.facebook.com/TwitterInc/.
Let me see!
We also don’t know if this feature will be permanently disabled or only temporarily. It is possible that this feature will be held again with new policies.
But, apart from that, even though we can’t connect Twitter to Facebook via official features, we can still do it with third-party apps.

Fortunately, there is now a service from the IFTTT (If This then That) app. This application is actually very popular, especially for social media activists.

In essence, the IFTTT app is designed to automate multiple commands with just one click.
IFTTT has also been integrated with more than 500 application services or devices, from Twitter, Facebook, Blogspot, Instagram, Android, WordPress, DropBox, and so on.
Well, in this context, we can also connect Twitter with Facebook using IFTTT.
To install the IFTTT application, you can download it on the Play Store for Android or the App Store if you use Apple.
