There’s a new application available in LinkedIn called Tweets. This does more than just the plain add your Twitter account and tweet at the same time you update your LinkedIn status. It give you access to your Twitter followers and their tweets from within LinkedIn. You can retweet and reply to your tweets too.
But these are not the gems of the application. What I really like is if your LinkedIn connections don’t have Twitter you can directly share the tweet message with them. It doesn’t even have to be your own tweet. Just click share and then pick your LinkedIn connection to compose a message. It will default to the subject “Interesting Tweet Found in LinkedIn Tweets” and put the tweet in the body of the message.
