Although I don’t actively use my Linkedin account, I try to keep up with any new functionality or features.

Setting up Twitter within my Linkedin was easy to do.

After logging into your Linkedin account, go to the add applications portion of your home page and find the Tweets application.

About the Tweets application:

With Tweets, you can now display your most recent tweets on your LinkedIn profile. Tweets also gives you instant access to the updates of people you are following on Twitter and the power to tweet, reply, and re-tweet — all from your LinkedIn home page.

Click add application to integrate Twitter account into your Linkedin profile.

Allowing Linkedin will then integrate your Twitter account Tweets into your Linkedin profile.

Once added, Linkedin gives their account holders the option whether  to display their Twitter identity on their Linkedin profile or not.

All Tweets can be displayed or just those with #IN or #Li hashtags.
