I have set up both a personal Twitter account and a corporate Twitter account. I have my corporate Twitter account following my personal account. The idea is that I want everything I tweet to be shown on the "home" page of the corporate Twitter account.

I am using various platforms/applications (e.g., inkedIn, Posterous, etc.) to send tweets under my personal Twitter account. However, to my dismay, all of the tweets I have sent from another application, are not being shown on my followers page (i.e., my corporate Twitter account).

Is there any special setup that I have to do, so that when I tweet via another app (under my personal account), those tweets are picked up by people following me on Twitter (including my corporate account)?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Is there a reason why you can't have those apps posting to the Corporate Account? I mean, you want everything to go there anyway; I'm not clear on the purpose of having two accounts. – Al E. Oct 15 '10 at 13:42

One method would be to automatically retweet everything by the one account. A quick web search shows that there are multiple ways of accomplishing this. One way is using Yahoo! Pipes. (An example of how to do that: http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-automatically-retweet-on-Twitter-using-Yahoo-Pipes-and-Twitterfeed-auto-RT-explained)

I've never heard of yahoo pipes. Thanks! – Aurora Afable Apr 21 at 2:02

You would have to Re-Tweet them. Just because your corporate account is following your personal account, doesn't mean anyone else will see your personal tweets.

You can use a recipe from IFTTT.

There is a rule you can setup where anything that is being tweeted by a profile can be retweeted by your own profile and vice-versa.

This is what I would use.
