RecruiterGuy on TwitterI find Twitter fascinating. I see it as many different things ranging from a search engine to an instant messaging device to a blogging platform to a time suck. And while these are just a few of the things that I myself have used it for - I love them all.

One of the first things recruiters have been struggling to understand since it's release is if Twitter is a viable tool for recruiting and/or sourcing. Of course if we're honestly looking for the answer to this issue we've got to understand that recruiting and sourcing are two different things. Yes, I know that many Recruiters source and that many Sourcers recruit - but the practices of Recruiting vs. Sourcing are very different.

Recently there was even a bit of static in the blogosphere about how social networking and new media channels might, or might not, be used for recruiting. And while this sparked some debate about what "social networks" work best and who had the biggest tweeter network I thought I'd try a little something this week. Let's walk through a quick experiment performed yesterday and create a little dialogue about what we think the results might mean, shall we?

Care to chime in? Read the rest here first.

Nice write up Chris - I like it when someone shows some results from actually doing what they are speaking to versus just talking about doing it, and the way you draw us into your web for the "rest of the story" is smart of course... said the spider to the fly ;-)
