Boolean Strings Network

The Internet Sourcing Community

 

When sourcing from Twitter, use the word 'following' in your string as every Twitter profile has the word 'following' on it so you will get mostly profiles/bios in your results:

In Google for example, here's a sample string:

site:twitter.com following "java developer" "location * ca" -job -recruiter

Just change the titles/skills to suit what you are searching for!

Have fun!

Gary, I am good at X-Raying Twitter and finding profiles, but I must admit, I don't use Twitter for much else (my linkedin automatically posts my update to my twitter). Is there an easy way to contact candidate directly on Twitter or do I have to follow them and wait for them to follow me so I can direct message them?

Yes - you can follow them then DM them (Direct Message) them-

 

You can also look them up on LI or on pipl.com or Google them or look them up on many look-up sites-

Thanks Gary! I use LI or pipl on a daily basis for researching candidates (which sometimes feels like I'm stalking them out with all the info available on the web... kinda scary, lol). I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing an easy/obvious way on Twitter since I technology is ever changing!

BTW, are you going to SourceCon next week?

Gary,

 

We can also try using intitle:"on twitter" in the string in place of following....
