Facebook now supports user tags in status updates (type @someonesname in a status update and you'll see what I mean) if there was a way to list (privately of course) that @joebloggs on twitter was also facebook.com/joebloggs or facebook.com/profile.php?id=11223344 then TweetPo.st could alter the tag for facebook as it was crossposting.
We’d love to try to do this (like you say, it wouldn’t be 100% accurate). However, we’re still waiting for Facebook to allow us to tag users in posts via their APIs.
A TweetFace user can set an option so that any tweets beginning with 'RT' don't get posted to Facebook46 votes
@rodbegbie, you’re totally right.
We’re going to start by implementing this as an option for new-style RT’s only.
And I think if the users don’t choose to filter them, we will still change the construction for Facebook (e.g. change it from “RT @username: message….” to “…message /via Real Name”
We will leave conventional RTs (i.e. regular tweets leading with the construction “RT @username”) unchanged.
How does that sound to people?
