Facebook tells Twitter users to “Keep it to yourself!”

November 5th, 2009

Yea, that’s right! Facebook was all “Hey, I know you like to share your tweets with the Facebook Community, well NO MORE!…” Well, kind of no more.

If you are like me, you may have noticed that ever since Tuesday November 3rd after 8PM Central – Your tweets have shown up on Facebook as Private “Only Me”

"Only Me" locked tweet on Facebook

However, after I took steps to figure out WTF happened, I solved it, and I’ll show you how too!

Unlocked Tweet on Facebook

Out of nowhere, Facebook decided to setup some function called “Publisher Control Default” which if yours looks like mine, it’d look like this:

Publisher Control Default - Custom - Only Me

Effectively making it so all content generated (such as Tweets) or other “Publisher Controls” were showing up as Only Me – seen above

This can be easily fixed by doing the following

After this point, all of your future Tweets will show up as your new classification, instead of being locked to "Only Me" - I haven't found a way to go back and modify past tweets from "Only Me" so, that's something you'll need to simply accept :) 

So, what this means for you is – You no longer have to worry about the loss of your visible tweets and the pure WTF-ness this was provided by Facebook (WTF Seriously!)

Also, if you’d like to follow me on Twitter or Facebook, feel free to send an invite :), and respectively, if you want to join my Mafia or other stuff, I love new friends!
