Selective Twitter – update FaceBook status from twitter

SelectiveTwitter is a FaceBook app that updates your FaceBook status with your tweets.

SelectiveTwitter, as the name goes, doesn’t update just about every tweet from your twitter timeline. Only tweets that end with the hashtag #fb are updated. This way, you are in total control of what tweets you want updated as your FaceBook status.

Please note that the app would not be able to update your FaceBook status if your twitter updates are protected.


  • Updates tweets ending with #fb
  • Avoid confusing your Facebook friends
  • Don’t swamp your profile with too many updates
  • Leave certain updates on Facebook for longer


SelectiveTwitter Says

BUT you can choose which tweets you want – just end a tweet with #fb when you want to post it as your Facebook status – simple!

    @wenn Logout of twitter and then go to your twitter page. If you can see your tweets even when you are logged out of twitter then you do not have a protected account. You can also check the same in ‘Settings’. To update to facebook, are you making use of the hashtag in your tweets?

    But what if i want to use “Selective Tweets” and wanna protected Tweets, because there are some Assholes spamming at me with @-Messages and that really sucks for real! The only way -that I know- to block them is by protecting my tweets so they don’t see a tweet from me so they can’t reply on anything.
