First, I ran across a cool twitter tool that would be very helpful to people in recruiting or sales (not that recruiting ISN’T sales, mind you – it is). It’s called tweetscan, and it allows you to search twitter’s public timeline for tweets that match your search string. It doesn’t support Boolean searches (David Sterry, are you listening? – that would be a really, really useful feature!), but it does allow automatic search agents, which is wicked cool. You can also add it as a search bar on your favorite (decent) web browser. I’ve got it set to do daily searches for RoR, Java, and Recruiter. I’m excited to see what tweetscan can do for me.
Second, my good recruiting buddy Paul DeBettignies wrote a post today about me! All about ME! To quote Sally Field: “You like me! You really LIKE me!” Okay – I know that’s a bit much, but Tom Steinthal mentioned me, too, so my head is bigger than a freaking watermelon!
Have a very happy New Year. Stay safe!
