LinkedIn Tip of the Day: Connect to Your Twitter Followers

linkedin plus twitter

Cross-check your LinkedIn connections against your key Twitter followers and those you follow to see who’s not connected. And then connect with them. You’ll be surprised who you don’t have as an LI Connection.

I’ve been finding this recently with people I’ve been connected with for years on Twitter who aren’t LinkedIn connections. The problem is that Twitter followers happen quickly. You don’t think about them. But LinkedIn is a more considered way of connecting and it doesn’t usually happen automatically.

My recommendation is to cross-check your most trusted Twitter followers (those who you tweet and retweet about and who tweet and retweet about you) and make sure that they’re connected on LinkedIn. It can really help your networking.
