There are a number of reasons to link Twitter with Facebook. Linking allows you to cross-post between the two platforms, saving you time. Cross-posting means you post the same thing on Facebook and Twitter at the same time.
Linking your Twitter and Facebook accounts also allows you to tap into a larger audience by reaching people who use both social media sites, which can be beneficial if you’re a digital marketer.
You can link your Twitter and Facebook accounts by using a tool such as Circleboom. You can also use IFTTT to automate posting between the two social media, for example, tweeting a link after the same one has been posted on your Facebook page.

Link Twitter and Facebook using IFTTT
IFTTT is a third-party service that can connect between apps, services, social media, and more. You can basically use IFTTT to link Twitter to Facebook and vice versa, with additional linking to Instagram and even a lot more social media you can connect to at the same time.
This is a great tool for many influencers, bloggers, social media agency, online businesses, or anyone else who really want to cross-posting between Twitter and Facebook basically in every way. If you’re an individual, you can use Twitter to make money.
Not only can you link Twitter and Facebook to cross-posting, but also do something on both platforms that are triggered by an action you do on one platform.
For example, you can change your Twitter photo profile automatically after you change your Facebook photo profile with the same picture.
To link these social media apps, you have to download the app first.
Once you download the app, open it and sign in with your account. If you don’t have one, you can create a new one pretty easily.
Now choose Get More to choose which service you want to connect.
Now, search for Twitter. Tap Twitter in the search result.
Search for an applet. An applet is a thing that links Twitter and Facebook. It is composed of triggers and actions, and they’re all different there. You can choose between triggers and actions pretty much anything.
Once you find one, tap it and tap Connect.
You will now need to authorize IFTTT to access both your Twitter and Facebook.
When you have successfully authorized IFTTT to link your Twitter and Facebook accounts, the applet will change automatically from Disconnected to Connected.
