Twitter and LinkedIn have announced a feature that will allow users to share status updates between the two accounts.
Users who set their status on LinkedIn will be able to link the update through to Twitter as well. Tweeted messages can also be sent back to the LinkedIn site from any Twitter service or tool.
Linkedin said on its company blog, "LinkedIn has always been about helping you to build your professional identity on the web. The many elements that make up your online professional brand range from your LinkedIn profile to the many professional conversations you are a part of."
The feature will roll out to every user over the next few days. LinkedIn said status updates have proved useful for users. The company added, "This is just the beginning - expect continued enhancements and expansions of the LinkedIn mobile platform in 2010."
