I recently connected a product related Facebook page to it's Twitter sister page, so when I post something on FB page, it automatically, shows on Twitter side. Now it looks a bit dumb to me that I basically don't need to go to Twitter as duplicated stuff shows from FB. I also see things from FB get cut because of Twitter's limits.
Things I post about are totally product oriented, including discounts, coupons, etc., as well as participating in discussions when they arise.

Do not and strongly counsel against it. My primary reason is that it becomes too easy to forget or ignore/put off checking the property that's being fed and when people respond to you, you're not there to answer and engage them. They'll lose interest and you'll lose credibility.
SM is NOT a one way conversation - eg. pushing content without willingness to engage is a really bad idea. But you probably already know this. :)

I like using a social media management tool like HootSuite to update all my social accounts from one spot. You can update everything in one fell swoop but still customize the messaging based on the platform. I think it's okay if the updates are the same across the board from time to time but if there is zero difference it starts to read a little spammy. My thought is you can post to Twitter with a lot more frequency than you can to Facebook without it looking like "too much" so why not take advantage of that?
