LinkedIn's Ryan Roslansky pointed to a Friday blog post from Twitter product team director Michael Sippey, in which Sippey said Twitter is focused on "providing the core Twitter consumption experience through a consistent set of products and tools."
In turn LinkedIn's Roslansky wrote in his own blog post that "Consistent with Twitter's evolving platform efforts, Tweets will no longer be displayed on LinkedIn starting later today,"
These announcements have brought an end to the three-year partnership between LinkedIn and Twitter. LinkedIn announced that it will no longer integrate tweets.
According to the partnership that started in 2009, LinkedIn users could link their accounts to Twitter, with messages posted to Twitter automatically showing up on the LinkedIn news feed.
But the connection is not completely lost though, LinkedIn users can still push updates through to twitter via the "Share" button, which will update both LinkedIn connections and Twitter followers.
Without mentioning directly for LinkedIn, Twitter's Sippey in his blog post stated that Twitter has "already begun to more thoroughly enforce our Developer Rules of the Road with partners."
Sippey further wrote that "Twitter cards are an important step toward where we are heading with our platform, which involves creating new opportunities to build engaging experiences into Twitter, that is, we want developers to be able to build applications that run within Tweets."
The question that could be raised is whether or not there could be more goodbyes to come for LinkedIn. Also, the network was lately in news for its privacy issues.
