June 16, 2008: Twitter
Twitter is at this writing the hottest, most-talked-about social-networking utility of the moment.
Part of the cachet of Twitter seems to be an “About Us” section that really does not explain what Twitter is. If you’re “cool,” you just know what it is. So, we turn to Wikipedia for a definition: Twitter is a: “social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send “updates” (or “tweets”; text-based posts, up to 140 characters long) to the Twitter web site, via the Twitter web site, short message service (SMS), instant messaging, or a third-party application, such as Twitterrific or Facebook.”
Relevance to the job search? Writes Deb Dib at Job-Hunt.org: “If you are managing your career, conducting an active job search, want to raise your visibility, love to share information, want to build community for yourself and/or company, or just have to have new Web 2.0 stuff, you need to know about Twitter.” (Read more.)
No cost to job-seekers.
