How Do I Unlink Twitter from Facebook?

If you have linked your Twitter account with your Facebook account then your tweets are automatically posted to your Facebook timeline. If you regret that decision and want to unlink the two accounts, it's pretty easy to do. You can do it using the Twitter app or on the Twitter website.

Many people love how your Twitter feed can be linked to your Facebook account so that Twitter automatically posts your tweets to your Facebook timeline. Not everyone is such a big fan of the option, though. After all, Facebook and Twitter are very different kinds of platforms, with different uses. Twitter is more of a fast-paced way for users to discover new content and hold conversations in something like real-time. It appeals more to younger users. Facebook is more of a way to have a deeper engagement with a more select group of people, with more options and formats for communication. Its users skew older. Many people find that it's better to tailor their posts to the platform they are posting on. If you linked your Twitter and Facebook accounts but have come to regret that decision, then read on to learn how to unlink them.

Getting Help

If you need to get the accounts unlinked for some reason, you can reach a Twitter customer support representative by phone or help forum. It's probably best to contact Twitter, as that is where you do the linking and unlinking. However, if you suspect that there's a problem with the Facebook end of things, you can reach a Facebook customer support representative by phone, email, chat, or help forum.
