From Facebook to Twitter — and vice versa: How to change a post

October 1, 2021

Do you want to learn how to post to Facebook and Twitter simultaneously? You've been racking your brains on how to change a tweet to a Facebook post or the other way around without switching the accounts and going from one app to another? Then this article is for you.

Posting the same post to different accounts

Everybody who knows their apps is aware that you can post e.g. from Instagram to Facebook and FB stories. However, what should you do if you want to change a Facebook post to a tweet? Do you actually have to switch from Facebook to Twitter? Can you post to both platforms at the same time?

Well, you can, if you have Postfity social media scheduler. You simply log in, connect your Facebook and Twitter accounts, and then click on their two icons in the menu to schedule the same post to two platforms at the same time.

Facebook to Twitter: posting to both platforms at once

As you can see, you can select more platforms, like Instagram, LinkedIn and VKontakte.

Facebook to Twitter: changes in the post

Obviously, Facebook and Twitter are vastly different platforms and their main difference is the character limit. Every Twitter poster know, that tweets have to be short, because they can fit exactly 280 characters. However, Facebook posts can be very, very long. Then, how should you change it?

For example, you may write a shorter version for Twitter, and then simply develop it and add new details to be posted on FB. You can then either schedule one by one, or simply use the "Edit" option on a post that's already in the queue.
