Twitter has quietly tweaked the way usernames, hashtags, photos and more are cross-posted to Facebook.

“The updated Twitter for Facebook integration now includes additional rich media experiences related to the first photo, URL, @mention or #hashtag in the cross-posted tweet,” Twitter spokesman Robert Weeks told Mashable on Thursday night. “This update is available for everyone.”

Twitter‘s Help Center also notes the changes, which Weeks says rolled out at the end of May: “We have fixed many issues with the Twitter for Facebook integration, including the ability to post to Facebook Pages, and added some new features!”

Users who don’t see the integration working can disconnect their Twitter and Facebook accounts in their Twitter profile settings and then reconnect their accounts in their Twitter profile settings.


Facebook users, prepare for hashtags annoyance!
