The browser extension, bearing the name "TwitterBook," uses Facebook's "Like" button iframe code to add the button when you hover over a tweet. "Liked" tweets show up on your profile and allow you to share your favorite posts. The developer is also working on a way to add a "Post to Facebook" checkbox to the Twitter update box. Check the Source Link to grab the extension and give it a test drive.
