LinkedIn Helps You Find the Right Twitter People to Follow

by Meg Guiseppi on May 28, 2010

Are you like many of my c-level and senior executive clients – a Twitter noobie, or thinking of diving in, and having a hard time figuring out who to follow?

You know that the more quality people you follow, the more value you’re likely to derive from Twitter. But how and where to find them?

Here comes LinkedIn with one solution to your dilemma.

They’ve just rolled out a huge improvement to their Tweets application, which launched last November.

Now you can easily find and monitor your LinkedIn connections on LinkedIn and Twitter.

In his May 25th post on the LinkedIn blog, Adam Nash (@adamnash on Twitter) described the features:

  • Once you’ve installed the Tweets application, you can easily access it from anywhere on LinkedIn using the “More…” menu at the top of the website.
  • The Overview tab has been updated with an improved design to help you easily find everyone you currently follow on Twitter, view their Twitter feed, and tweet from your own account.
  • A new module, “Connections to Follow”, has been added to recommend new people for you to follow, based on your LinkedIn connections.
  • A new tab has been added to Tweets called “Connections”. On that page, you can see all of your LinkedIn connections who have added Twitter accounts to their LinkedIn profiles. Simple navigation is provided to make it easy to see who you are and aren’t following on Twitter.
  • One of the most useful features of the new Tweets application is the ability to save your LinkedIn connections as a dynamic Twitter list.

Nice to hear from you, Jacob!

It’s no wonder the Tweets app got by you. LinkedIn seems to have been very busy lately adding new features to enhance our experience.

Ciao!

Great tip. I hadn’t even noticed the Tweets application but I’ve now added it to my profile too.
