Can I suggest people take a look at HootSuite (I don't work for them!) - it allows you to monitor several streams of keywords all on the same page, as well as monitoring multiple streams of lists. You can also post to multiple social media sites - although I tend to shape my posts to the social media sites individually. This would be far easier than setting up multiple twitter accounts and doing regular multiple keyword searches and it can be left running in the background. By the way its free.
All the best,
n use it any way you want -- or not.
I think the real question is not how do I use Twitter effectively -- I think the real question becomes what am I trying to accomplish and what tools (and how) can I use to enable me to do this most effectively. There are certainly advantages and disadvantages to all tools. That is why there is not just one answer. Personally, I am interested not just in recruiting and sourcing talent, but learning new things and perspectives, increasing my skills/knowledge, nurturing and growing my network, etc.
I really enjoy people challenging each other to think about things in different ways which is one of the reason I read your posts - and frankly many of the people who are responding to this chain and others. So whether I do it here, on Twitter, Google Reader, or wherever - hat tip to you all!…
e, there is so much information that the value of raw data is very small. In fact the problem for most recruiters isn’t being able to find people but being swamped with the masses of candidates available to them. The value therefore, of recruitment software is not about simply storing data but being able to manage it and extract value from it.
I have spend my career looking for ways to help recruiters work more effectively and get more value from what they already know. Most recruiters have thousands of candidates and they will know tens of thousands of other people within their industry. If a recruiter can effectively tap into this resource then I see little reason how they could want for more.
