How to Auto-Update Twitter with Your Facebook Status

I noticed that Marie-Claude‘s Facebook status appears automatically on Twitter. I asked her how she did it — because I wasn’t able to figure it out beyond that I needed to use Twitterfeed. Alas, Marie-Claude couldn’t remember exactly how she made it work, but she told me to find my minifeed.

That was enough for me. So here it is, step-by-step. :)

  1. Go to your Facebook minifeed page. (Make sure to log in!)
  2. On your minifeed page, look at the list on your right under View.
  3. Select the type of feed you want to send to Twitter. Most people, I think, want to send their status updates. If so, you can grab it here.
  4. Now, scroll down until you reach the very bottom of the View column.
  5. There, you will see another heading titled Subscribe to these Stories. Right under it is a RSS icon with a link to your feed RSS. Click on it.
  6. Check to make sure that the link you clicked on is a valid RSS feed.
  7. Now grab the feed url.
  8. Go to Twitterfeed. Make sure you’re logged in. If you don’t have an account, you must create one.
  9. Create a new feed. Put your Facebook minifeed RSS url from Step 7 in the RSS Feed URL field you see on your screen. (Everything else is self-explanatory, BTW. Twitterfeed is very easy to use.)
  10. You’re done! Enjoy!

Please do let me know if you have any questions! :)
