Facebook/Twitter integration FAIL: a quick fix?

Yesterday my integration between Twitter and Facebook broke once again. This morning, rather than go through the elaborate steps I worked out last time, the IT guy in me rebelled and decided to experiment. Here’s a simply fix that I tried (in intuition) and in this case, it worked for me:

  1. Go to Facebook
  2. Go to Apps
  3. Click on Twitter
  4. Under Apps Permissions UNCHECK Facebook Profile
  5. When the litte spinner stops spinning, RECHECK Facebook Profile

That’s it. Once I did that it jogged loose whatever was wrong with the integration and when I tweeted 20 seconds later, it showed up on Facebook instantly.

If you are running into integration trouble, I’d give this a try first.
