LinkedIn and Twitter announce tie-up

A new partnership has been announced between Twitter and LinkedIn. The two companies explained on Monday that LinkedIn status messages can now sync with Twitter.

"The business-use case of Twitter is turning out to be very important, and more and more people are finding that the persona they create for themselves on the web is part of their resume in many ways," Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said in a joint video with LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman, which was posted to the LinkedIn blog.

In short, LinkedIn's 'status' feature now syncs with Twitter with an optional check box, a feature that the two companies say should be rolling out over the next few days. Likewise, users can set their Twitter status as their LinkedIn status by using the hash tag #li or #in.

LinkedIn is the social network of the business world. Their tag line 'Relationships Matter'
