Why can't I connect my private Facebook account with Twitter? It works with the corporate ones I manage, but not my private account.

You can connect your personal Facebook page to your Twitter account - you just can't do this as easily as corporate pages. See this question for details on how to post to both.

As to "why" this cannot be done - I'm afraid no one here is really going to be able to explain the reasoning for this. (Not unless a Facebook employee posts the reasons why).

If you really want to know the reasons why, I would suggest that you contact Facebook directly and ask them for clarification.
