a better integration with Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook
Overall a better integration with Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook would be nice.
So, you get a single pane of glass to manage your social networks.

Teams USED to have a nice Twitter connector. I found out yesterday that it has been discontinued (thus I cannot add new Twitter connectors and the existing Twitter connections are no longer updating). The solution is to use Power Automate. Really? It is an extra step of inconvenience to the user. It doesn't work very well. I only want news from the main post (not replies within a post), made obvious from an existing template. I want it to look like it comes from Twitter (which it is), and not from me (because it is my "flow"). Big fail IMHO. In addition, where is the LinkedIn feed connector so my company news comes into Teams? We shouldn't make users have accounts and have to spend time looking at various social networks to know our public presence. Teams should be viewed as the aggregator, as it is with communications and collaboration.
I've got this integration working for Twitter pulling in feeds into Teams and it seems to be working quite well so far in that it pulls in feeds based on hashtags and followers, but then within Teams you can Like and Retweet. It's great. https://appsource.microsoft.com/en-us/product/office/WA104381549?tab=Overview&src=GEP_TopTeamsIntegrations
It would be great to have something similar for LinkedIn
Connexion with LinkedIn could be useful
This should include a LinkedIn connector.

Read only connectors to twitter/facebook would be good, so that we can pull posts/tweets into a channel without giving the ability to post tweets to anyone viewing the channel. We currently have this in Slack via the app there.
I would realy like a LinkedIn connection. As a working tool, I should get an update and a history on the sites I find nessesary

Now we can connect a channel to Facebook, great, thanks. Connecting to LinkedIn is even more important. Teams is more for business use so LinkedIn.
LinkedIn would be a great addition, now it's on the MS train, that should be easier ;-)

We have sharepoint, yammer, skype, skype for business etc
now we have groups, not to mention LinkedIn groups
These should all seamlessly work. They should be able to include and exclude external guests as desired.
With MS now owning LI, it seems to me that MS Teams and LI groups are the same thing - so why not integrate? that would solve the validation issue that external guests seem to have.
To date MS have screwed the Yammer integration - is the same missed opportunity going to happen with Teams and LinkedIn?

Yes - some sort of LinkedIn Integration would be fantastic.

External collaborators from my LinkedIn contacts would be available when I go to add members to a team ?
