Earlier this week, LinkedIn made a splash when it announced that Twitter and LinkedIn status updates can now be synced. LinkedIn users could tweet from their status updates by checking a Twitter checkbox, while Twitter users could update their LinkedIn status by adding the hashtag #li or #in.
While we thought that users would latch onto the new feature, we never imagined it would do this. According to LinkedIn, status updates on LinkedIn have increased by 25%. Not only that, but at its peak yesterday, 200 users were linking their Twitter and LinkedIn accounts every minute.
