How to share a tweet on Facebook

Cross-posting of social media posts from one social media platform to another is a favorite process of bloggers and marketers because by doing this we can share any social media platform’s post on another social media platforms with one click and it saves our time too.

Twitter and Facebook, as you all know, are among the most popular social media platforms today.

So it makes sense to cross-post any post by bloggers and marketers on both these platforms.

So in this post, we are going to know how we can post tweets on Facebook and Facebook posts on Twitter in the same way.

It sounds easy, but to do all this, you have to follow this step-by-step guide.

Sharing of tweets from Twitter to Facebook

You can do this in 2 ways but one method is not working since 2018. This method is the automatic cross-posting of tweets on Facebook walls.

2 Methods of sharing tweets

  1. Automatic Cross posting (not working) 
  2. Manual posting. 

So let’s discuss both the methods of sharing tweets and why you can’t use this not working method right now.

1. Automatic cross-posting of tweets on Facebook (not working method in 2021)

Before 2018, we could very easily connect these two social media platforms, and by doing so, your Twitter tweets were automatically shared on Facebook.

It was a very easy process and also saved the time of bloggers and marketers, as they can share their content on 2 different platforms at the same time.

You only have to go on your Twitter account and after that, you have to click on the “privacy and setting” option. 

After clicking you had the option of “Applications and Devices” and from here you could easily connect both these platforms by clicking on the “Connect with Facebook” option.

Keeping in mind the Cambridge-Analytica scandal, Facebook changed the policies of its platform in such a way that no external apps or platforms could publish on Facebook.

Facebook has given this information in its blog post.

Facebook said that  “The publish_actions permission will be deprecated. This permission granted apps access to publish posts to Facebook as logged-in users. Apps created from today onwards will not have access to this permission. Apps created before today that have been previously approved to request publish_actions can continue to do so until August 1, 2018. No further apps will be approved to use publish_actions via app review. Developers currently utilizing publish_actions are encouraged to switch to Facebook’s Share dialogs for web, iOS, and Android.”

So today you can’t connect these platforms. Even if you try to connect your Facebook account to Twitter it shows you the connection process but fails to connect. 

You will see an endless loop if you try to connect to Twitter. 

But on Twitter, you can connect to other social media networks like bitly, Mailchimp, Fiverr, etc. You can take advantage of this feature if you use any of these platforms more. 

Twitter has also claimed that these errors occurred after Facebook’s policies changed, leading to stop the automatic cross-posting feature on Facebook pages.

2. How to share a tweet manually on Facebook

So now let’s learn how you can manually copy the link of twitter’s tweets and share them on Facebook page and timeline.

Yes, I know this process is very boring and time-consuming but this is the only process by which you can share tweets on your Facebook account.

Step-by-step Guide to share tweets

Step-1: For this, you have to log in to your Twitter account and open your timeline.

Step-2: Then choose your desired tweet and click on the share option below the tweet.

Step-4: Open your Facebook account and click on “new post”, then you can simply paste your link there. 

Then you can click on the post button to post that tweet on your timeline.

These are the steps by which you can share a tweet on Facebook.
