No more Twitter posts on your LinkedIn profile
| by Ramkumar Iyer |
Business social networking site LinkedIn today said in a blog post that its users would no longer be able to sync tweets to their profiles as a result of some policy changes by popular microblogging platform Twitter. The announcement came soon after Twitter announced a slew of stricter guidelines on its own blog. According to the Twitter blog, as a result of increased focus on “providing the core Twitter consumption experience through a consistent set of products and tools”, Twitter will not allow third parties to use its content in a manner that imitates Twitter’s own services.
Linkedin and Twitter part ways
Twitter’s move comes at a hard time for LinkedIn. The site is currently facing a $5 million class action lawsuit for a security breach wherein the usernames and passwords of account holders were compromised. The plaintiff is a woman named Katie Szpyrka from Illinois in the United States. According to reports, Szpyrka has been a member of LinkedIn since 2010 and claims that LinkedIn "failed to properly safeguard its users’ digitally stored personally identifiable information including e-mail addresses, passwords, and login credentials”. She filed the suit in a United States District Court in a district in Northern California and wants a trial in front of a jury on the grounds of breach of contract and negligence.
