  4. 4. TWITTER Biography From a professional perspective, make it clear exactly what it is that you do. This helps differentiate you from others with similar bios. Don't just state you're in a sales role, mention the industry in which you work. If you're a recruiter, what kind of candidates are your specialty? Do you work in marketing? Which industry sector? Your Twitter bio should position you as an expert in your field who serves a specific audience. The problem is that most people position themselves as generalists or 'Jacks-of-all- trades,' and that won't work in this economy. Your Twitter profile picture helps instantly identify you to those following you -- and tells those who aren't more about you.

  11. 11. Why use Twitter Twitter isn’t the first social network someone typically thinks about when applying for a job, but it does have some unique advantages over other social platforms. The lack of barriers to connect with thought leaders was one of the most-mentioned advantages during the live chat. Twitter’s openness makes it a useful platform for showcasing your talents, personality, style, and interests. Recruiters can get an idea of who you are, and if you would be a good fit at their company. It’s not just transparency of candidates, but companies as well. It is great for connecting meaningfully with people and companies you don’t already know, which is much more difficult to do on platforms such as Facebook and LinkedIn. You can develop a rapport with people you may not have access to in real life. It’s easier and more convenient for a recruiter to reply to your tweet than to pick up the phone. Twitter facilitates quicker responses.
