Thursday evening I was on Twitter and tweeted that I was looking for a job on Craigslist. The next morning I woke up and checked my email to find that I’d had a request for my resume during the night, so I sent it on, you never know right?
Well just a few hours later I went to lunch from my job and checked my email again to find that my resume showed exactly what my now employer was looking for so I called him and we started discussing what I had to offer and what he needed done for his business. Seems my skills are right in line with what the company needs so I was extended an offer.
THANK YOU TWITTER. For that alone, it was worth signing up for Twitter, which I’ve now been on for nearly a year. I’ve met tons of great people and more and more are joining daily, recently I’ve started following Christopher Walken, MC Hammer, Mark Cuban (a local hero), President Obama is also on Twitter, as is Britney Spears, Ashton Kutcher and a host of other people you can find on www.wefollow.com or you can look for people close to your location at www.nearbytweets.com, you can even have someone suggest people for you to follow if you follow Mr. Tweet.
Twitter is a great forum for discussion, information and what’s going on all over the world generally. It’s definitely worth your while to check it out. I just sent my 4,000th tweet.
