"In the Information Age: Knowing equals Being."
- Kathleen Parker , Washington Post (may require free sign-up - worth it if you want to follow the DC political scene)
She asks, "Come to think of it, how long before we begin to expect, if not demand, that public officials twitter?"
I think she has something here: Shareholders should demand that executives twitter - sort of like an electronic ankle bracelet for criminals. Hiring managers should twitter to at least all high potential candidates. Recruiters should twitter if nothing else to placate their bosses who ask, "Are you ever going to get off that job board and talk to someone?"
Recruiter tweet:"Twittering to 17 candidates right now."
Will the phone become passé now???
