Post to Twitter

Post to Twitter and get your social updates and Tweets in one place—the People app. Choose how you want to see your updates—all together, from just one social network at a time or by person.

Note: Due to changes Facebook has made to its software, Facebook integration in the People app is no longer supported. This means that the People app will no longer be able to access information from or share directly to Facebook. For more information, see Facebook Connect is no longer available .
