As per the sources, due to the decision of Facebook of cutting off the access to its API platforms for many apps, the Twitter users will no longer be able to automatically tweet and retweet from their Facebook accounts. Facebook has expressed their disapproval of its Publish actions permissions from its API, a known feature that is famous for allowing apps to publish their posts on the particular social media platform as the logged-in user. It has been stated by the Ime Archibong, Vice President of Product Partnerships at Facebook, that all apps using this Platform APIs would have to go through a more extensive review for the better protection of user’s Facebook information.

August 1 was the final deadline to submit the information for the review of 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. The support team Twitter has tweeted on Thursday after some of the users said that they were unable to post publish tweets on Facebook.

"We've learned that Tweets and Retweets will no longer automatically post to connected Facebook accounts due to a recent Facebook update," said Twitter Support. "Don't worry, you have other ways to share a Tweet," it added.

"According to Facebook, anyone wanting to have Twitter content automatically post to Facebook has the option to use Facebook's Share dialogs for the web, iOS, and Android," said "You have the option to share via Direct Message with your followers, or through an SMS or email to your contacts from your phone's address book," said Twitter Support page.
