You can add a Facebook page link in your Twitter profile page so your followers could visit your Facebook page for additional beyond-140char content, but how do you add your Twitter profile link to your tab on Facebook Timeline? Adding external links can easily be done from your Facebook page’s profile information where there’s a column to add your website address, but this will not appear on your tab.
