As both facebook and twitter these days are getting popular so people who spend time online want to be active on both of these platforms and but at the same time if they want to post the same update both on facebook and twitter, they normally don’t like to do it one more time, in such cases you will need to make these platforms sync with each other for the updates cross posting.

However there is a way with which you could post some of your selective tweets on facebook which you want to, by using a app called selective tweets but other way round is little different as there are not many apps available on facebook which lets you post selective updates from your facebook profile to twitter, however if you ready to post all facebook status updates, videos and links etc to twitter there is a app which says post on twitter from facebook its named Fbtotweet

This app on facebook will let you post all the updates from facebook to twitter, but it will not happen instantly could take up to 30 minutes when the app service servers are heavily loaded. It will automatically upload your pictures via yFrog and shorten your shared links via Bit.ly – you can also disable these options for your Facebook account and for any of your facebook fan pages that your syncing.

Another way to post only some updates from facebook to twitter can be done through official facebook way of linking to twitter. As facebook now allows your facebook profile to link to twitter – in order to link to go to http://facebook.com/twitter and click Link My Profile to Twitter as shown in the image below.
