Twitter users are no longer able to cross-post tweets on Facebook

With Facebook cutting off access to its API platform for hundreds of thousands of apps, Twitter users are no longer able to cross-post tweets on Facebook.

Facebook has deprecated its Publish actions permissions from its API — a feature that allowed apps to publish posts on the social media platform as the logged-in user.

Ime Archibong, Vice President of Product Partnerships at Facebook, said all apps using the Facebook Platform APIs would need to go through a more comprehensive review to better protect people’s Facebook information.

The deadline was August 1 to submit for review for all existing apps.

“As a result, we are cutting off API access for hundreds of thousands of inactive apps that have not submitted for our app review process,” said Archibong.

Twitter’s support team tweeted on Thursday after users reported they were not able to post publish tweets on Facebook.
