Who would have believed in 2002 when Reid Hoffman was mooting the idea of a professional social network – a kind of Facebook for suits – that it would prove to be an amazing success and grow to in excess of 400 million users?
I make extensive use of twitter and have amassed a considerable number of followers over the last 12 months or so, but lately I’m seeing more and more followers claiming they can get me thousands more (for a small price).
Well, probably not, but you never know! For a number of weeks now, rumours have been floating around in the ether that certain unscrupulous employers are asking job seekers in interviews to hand over their Facebook password, presumably so that they can further screen the candidate’s suitability for the job.
I love twitter, I think micro-blogging is a fantastic invention, and it has created a whole industry of software, experts and advisers around it. Fantastic! However, of all the tools created that help you manage your twitter account(s), I just do not see the point of TrueTwit – worse, I find it annoying!
