How to: Add Twitter to Google+

This is not a strict step by step guide on how to add Twitter to your Google Plus profile but you may still find it beneficial. In my post previous to this I mentioned Google+Facebook, an extension / app which integrates your Facebook feed directly into the safe and cosy world of your Google+ account. The same developer (Bruno Barbieri) has developed something similar for Twitter; simply install Google+Twitter, authorise your Twitter account and then hit “Go”. You can now click on the Twitter (birdy) logo on your Google+ tabs and be presented with a (reduced) version of your Twitter account!

I doubt this will be used as a replacement to some of the Twitter clients out there but it is certainly a handy feature if you want to check what’s going on in the Twitter world without having to navigate away from your Google Plus profile. Combine this with the Facebook version and you pretty much have all your main social networks under one roof.

    Hi Scott
    I’ve installed Google+twitter that you recommended onto my laptop. It works for Firefox but does not work for IE9. Have you come across that? In IE9, when I click on the Twitter symbol, I get no content in the main part of the page and an IE9 warning at the bottom saying ‘Only secure content is displayed’ and ‘What’s the risk?’ and ‘Show all content’ – all in a bar at the bottom. When I click ‘show all content’ or just the x to get rid of it, I get my Google+ homepage and no Twitter at all and also the Twitter logo has gone from the LH column. Please advise on if you have encountered this before.

      Hello Richard,

      I apologise for the delayed response. I actually only use Chrome so unfortunately have never encountered that problem before, I’ve publicly displayed your question now though so hopefully another reader might be able to help you out.

      Kind regards,

    Hi, adding the google+ facebook and google+ twitter extensions caused the Text Enhance Adware to infect my machine. I’ve removed the extensions now and ‘Text Enhance’ is gone, was this supposed to happen?

      Hello John,

      I’m sorry to hear that you experienced that, it’s the first report I have heard of there being problems. At the date of writing the article there was nothing wrong with the extension.
