Irina, as Tech Tips Editor for The Source Newsletter, I am seeking a recruiter or sourcer who is using Twitter successfully to source candidates and potential clients. I would like to publish an article written by this person in our April edition. Do you know anyone who is currently using Twitter successfully to source that you can refer me to? The article should be between 500-700 words and shouldn't take more than an hour or so to write. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you know of someone you can refer me to. This could be a great opportunity to showcase one's talents in another forum. Thanks!
Twitter and Google are two different types of sources for a sourcer. Even comparing them seems a little awkward
Twitter: allows to search on public conversations and is becoming an important source of finding information. As a sourer, I would say it is similar to a forum search, though a lot easier, but less targeted. No matter how popular it becomes, it will not give me all the information which a Search engine provides.
Google: Like a typical search engine Indexes a lot of the web content available, (even Twitter). Something a twitter search can't
Well, unless Twitter/Google/or someone else, comes up with a search engine which gives an option of searching on Tweets, it would be great. We have a Google blog search.
