We knew it was probably happening, but now we have the proof. David Meerman Scott has documented people, like David Murray, using Twitter to connect with their next jobs. In this case, David was looking for a job in the social network world, so Twitter was an obvious venue to use. It demonstrated his skill as well as connecting him with his market.
In case you don’t know about it, Twitter is the “micro-blogging” network where you don’t have LinkedIn “connections.” You have “followers” and you “follow” others. In other words, people subscribe to your “Tweets” and you subscribe to Tweets by others.
Obviously, doing appropriate and interesting Tweets is a skill, but it can be learned, by hundreds of thousands of people obviously.
