...and there is no significance to it..
LOL, I am just ROFLMAO - Jim expressly states that the List is JUST what pops up when you type in the WORD RECRUITER -- those who have the WORD RECRUITER in their profile would have come up based upon their useage of Twitter. Nothing more nothing less...
If YOU want to be on the list, just add the words on Your Profile
Type in the word RecruitING and another list will come up.. and there is no significance to it..
I'm cruising for a hot date.
I'll admit - I've had fun with Twitter. Just as I have fun meeting a few friends after work for a cold one. But when I meet a few friends after work - I don't drag my entire list of potential placements with me and leave it on the bar for anyone/everyone to have. Especially since the "bar" is being combed by thousands of recruiters doing exactly that - looking for my list! My list is pretty hard to come by - trust me - I know what it took to get them!
So what intrigues me most is why a good recruiter would spend a great deal of effort compiling a list of targeted candidates to follow - only to then have that very same list "adopted" by any/every recruiter with those same intentions?
This is far different from the Linked In discussion of having "your contacts" made available to your entire network. Twitter requires no permission, correspondence or even awareness on the part of the one who has a great "following/followers" database. If I see you have 300 great candidates - I'm going to click FOLLOW on every one of them.
I doubt highly that this has only occurred to me. Perhaps I'm the only one saying it out loud though......
