How to Import from Twitter into Google Buzz

google buzz 2If you’re a Twitter user who is giving Google Buzz a spin, chances are you’re not going to want to manually post the same updates to both sites.

Fortunately, it’s possible to set up your tweets to be automatically imported into Google Buzz.

Here are step-by-step instructions to do that.

Importing from Twitter to Google Buzz

1) Go into Google Buzz and click on the “Connected Sites” link (shown below)

2) In the window that pops up (see below), you’ll see an option for Twitter, click the “Add” button next to it.

3) Enter your Twitter username & click the “Connect” Button.

4) Be sure to click the “Save” button at the bottom of the “Connected Sites” window.

People are reporting a delay between the time a tweet is posted to Twitter and it’s imported into Buzz of anywhere from a couple minutes to over an hour.

If you prefer, another option is to do the opposite and export your Google Buzz into Twitter.  Just don’t do both or you’ll create an infinite loop.

If you follow these instructions, please give us some feedback.  Did everything work as expected?  How long did it take from when you completed the instructions until your tweets started showing up in Google Buzz?
