If you’re like me, you’re a self-obsessed narcissist who’s self-confidence is determined by the approval of your peers. Here is a quick and easy way to find all of your Facebook friends on Twitter so you can take another step on the path of social networking dominance! (Note: I used my Yahoo! mail account, I’m unaware of the accessibility through other platforms.)
Log into your Yahoo! account and click on the “Contacts” tab on the left side of your screen. This will open up a new page showing your contacts on the left of the screen and a list of “Popular Tools” on the right side of your screen. Click on “Import Contacts” and then click on the Facebook icon.
After you’ve imported all of your Facebook contacts to your Yahoo! account, open your Twitter profile in a new tab/window. Click on the “Who to Follow” tab on the upper right hand side of the page. A new screen will show multiple services to connect with, click on the Yahoo! icon.
After waiting for Twitter to import your contacts (duration is based on the number of contacts, obviously the more contacts you have the longer it will take) a new screen will show up showing all ofyour Yahoo contacts with Twitter pages.
The screen of imported contacts allows you a couple of options: You can see how many of your contacts you are already following, invite facebook friends who don’t have a twitter account and most importantly follow the people you’d like to connect with. Currently there are two options, you can click on a button showing “Follow All (# of Contacts)” or you can browse each profile and follow your facebook friends individually.
Start working on your humor because you now have to interact with people you actually know!
