The other day, Facebook announced it had deprecated its Post actions permissions from its API , a feature that made it possible for applications to publish posts to Facebook since the logged-in user.
In accordance with Facebook, it expects that roughly 60, 000 apps will be impacted — one of which is Twitter.
Twitter’ s support team tweeted the following message to users not long after Facebook had removed access to the Publish actions permissions feature:
We’ ve learned that Tweets and Retweets will no longer automatically post to connected Facebook accounts due to a recent Facebook update.
Don’ t worry, you have other ways to talk about a Tweet 😁 https://t.co/fiwInkuyz7

This means that a Twitter user who had linked their Twitter account to a Fb account to automatically share their particular tweets and retweets on Fb will no longer have that option.
A Facebook spokesperson verified that this was a result of Facebook’ h decision to deprecate the Distribute actions permissions feature and that Tweets had been impacted. According to Facebook, anybody wanting to have Twitter content immediately post to Facebook has the choice to use Facebook’ s Share dialogs for web, iOS and Google android.
Facebook first introduced it was deprecating Publish actions permissions in April. The company said several categories of developers with apps that will had long product life cycles had received an extension so that they had more time in order to update their software.
Not only did apps lose the opportunity to automatically publish content to Facebook, the business says it removed access to the API platform for hundreds of thousands associated with inactive apps — all a part of Facebook’ s effort to clean up its application landscape to safeguard consumer data.
