When we covered the Google+Facebook extension, we showed users just how easy it was to post to Google and Facebook at the same time. Now, the same creators, have developed an extension for a variety of browsers that lets you post to Google and Twitter at the same time. Google+Tweet allows you to share on both social networks at the same time so as not to lose out on your audiences between the two.
The Google+Tweet extension not only lets you post on Twitter, but it also lets you view your timeline to stay in the loop to what is going on there while on Google+.
How to use Google+Tweet
In order to get started with Google+Tweet, just like other extensions for your web browser, you need to install Google+Tweet.
It is available for Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox.
Click on “Get Google+Tweet.”
Your browser will prompt you to follow the instructions for your browser to guide the installation process.
Simply follow those instructions and a few seconds later, Google+Tweet will be installed and ready for you to use.
Once installed, you will be given the blog and Twitter address for updates on Google+Tweet.
Now, login to your Google+ account.

Google+Tweet will ask you to login and authorize the connection between the extension and your Twitter account.
Click “Sign in with Twitter” to do just that.
You will have to enter your username and password, then click “Authorize app.”
Google+Tweet will let you know that it was successful.
Now, click the “Twitter icon” in your Google+ main toolbar.
Your Twitter timeline will begin to populate the Google+ Stream in its own way.
You can post to your Twitter account, add a picture or link and even add a location to your tweet.
You can then go through your Twitter feed and read the latest from those you follow, check your @ mentions, your direct mentions, re-tweets and even search for what is going on.
When you post from the Google+Tweet extension, you will see it shows that connected to the tweet.
