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!

Obviously, as it might be expected, i started looking for the facebook connect feature in the facebook settings. In account settings, applications and even privacy settings! but no success! as they were not there ofcourse! So then where to find them and disable? here it is in the following tutorial.

  6. Ashley Burleson

    Thank you SO much for this very simple, easy to understand post. I recently set up Facebook and Twitter accounts for my company and have spent hours on Facebook and HootSuite trying to figure out how to turn this feature off. I assumed Facebook or HootSuite was “pushing” the posts…it never occurred to me that Twitter may have been “pulling” the posts. Such an easy fix and I would have never found it. :)

    My sincerest thanks,
    Ashley Burleson
