On 13 Best Twitter Practices to Follow

Hey Jennifer-

I generally avoid having your Facebook posts automatically posted on Twitter for a couple of reasons:

1. People can usually tell it's automated.

2. The context in which you post your contet for each platform should be different.

3. There is a character limit on Twitter and not on Facebook. You don't want to have a tweet with only a part of the intedend copy.

On Google+ for Business: A Beginner's Guide

Hi Tad- I like to delete the link in the copy after Google+ detects the article I'm sharing, because 1. it's unnecessary; Google+ will display the link and the link image (if applicable) below the post you are sharing anyway. And 2. Often links are long and contain a variety of characters.  By deleting the link you are cleaning up your post and making the message seemingly shorter and appearing cleaner.
