Luckily, you can connect your Twitter account to Facebook so that your Facebook posts appear on both sites simultaneously. While the process of connecting your Twitter account to Facebook used to be possible via the Twitter website, changes to Facebook's privacy laws have ended the ability to auto-post your tweets to your Facebook page. However, you can still connect your accounts so that your Facebook status updates appear on your Twitter account. Here's how to do it.
