    Hi, I've been trying to share other ppl's tweets on my facebook profile page using my Android phone. However, I couldn't do it so far.
    I've used various twitter applications but they all gave me same result. Error msg saying "Your link could not have been found" and shows text box with type your link here.

    I've connected my facebook with my twitter account and allowed twitter to post my tweets on my facebook page. So this does work when I post my tweets. However, retweeting didn't work so I tried share button on the application but kept on giving me that error message. Can someone plz help me with this?

    Thanks

    I've noticed this too. When I tweet, my tweets go to facebook, but when I click the Retweet button, they dont. The workaround I found is, don't click the Retweet button, click the Quote button. Delete the quotes at the beginngin and end of the tweet, and add RT at the beginning. This makes it look like you are typing your own tweet, but since you put the RT in it, twitter will still see it as a retweet.

    Hi
    Thanks for your info. But I hope there is a better way....... if not I guess I'll do that until twitter comes up with better app.
    But is that the only way?
    Is there anyway to just click one button and does it for you?

    That's the only way I know of. Again, when you do the "one click retweet" in the twitter app, it just posts to twitter, and facebook doesnt see it. I dont know why.
