How to disable Facebook auto connect to Twitter (stop auto links posting)

Some days ago i turned on this facebook connect feature with twitter, which started auto posting all my shared links from facebook to twitter automatically. Quite helpful, but turned out to be quite irritating. . . why? well because most of links were from my blog and i installed auto tweet plugin in my wordpress blog too . . so it started making duplicate posts in my twitter account, one from the blog itself and the other one from facebook connect! One more issue was that the links posted by facebook connect didn’t have any text or intro to it, just the shortcut link and that’s all! So finally decided to remove the facebook connect feature!
