LinkedIn Stops Sharing Tweets in Profile to Comply With Twitter

In a post on its blog, LinkedIn has announced that it will stop sharing a stream of Tweets on user profiles, in order to comply with stricter rules that Twitter is enforcingwith regards to its API.

Essentially, the changes mean that you’ll no longer be getting a straight-up stream of your Twitter posts in your LinkedIn profile. Twitter’s Michael Sippey says that these changes “highlight the increasing importance of us providing the core Twitter consumption experience through a consistent set of products and tools.”

He refers to the fact that Twitter’s Developer Rules of the Road say that developers should not “build client apps that mimic or reproduce the mainstream Twitter consumer client experience.” That, apparently, includes this new enforcement that affects LinkedIn.
