Just a quick note though - this is not any type of jab at Jim Stroud. In fact - I'm glad he did this. I like his stuff and this is great.
It should make us think about whether we want to be on list like that or not. Some aspire to it. Others could care less. I am squarely in the middle.......
Is that what it measures? Seems silly. I try to follow people in the space that I recruit in, and just follow a few recruiters that interest me. My goal with twitter is to get the word out to people who might be interested in the jobs I'm working on.
...if you can get a strategy in place to build the target market following, that would be a huge winner. I'm still working on mine.
I basically setup my twitter up like Pam. I follow people in the medium for which I'm recruiting... I however follow many social media people because I hope to glean from them... and finally I may follow a few in a medium in which I'm interested in learning more.... Can others share how they address followers on twitter.
