Wouldn’t it be nice to link your Facebook account to your Twitter account? It was possible at one point, but was discontinued back in 2018. Through your settings, you could link your Facebook account to your Twitter account and whenever you Tweeted, it would post it on your Facebook as well. Alas, when Facebook uploaded a new update, the connection was canned.
