There are a couple of great ways to join in the monthly Social Recruiting chat on Twitter known as TalentNet Live, or #TNL for short. You can find us on Twubs, login at RecruitingBlogs.com, or use a tool like TweetGrid. Ryan Leary made a great video demo of how to use Tweetgrid to follow the conversation. Here it is. Thanks Ryan!
#TNL takes place on the last Wednesday of each month from 8-10pm Central time and features your favorite Social Recruiting peeps. Hope to see you there.

Ever join a Twitter chat like #TNL or #jobhuntchat? Ever have trouble keeping up with the hundreds of tweets coming across your screen? Some may already be running with this program, but if you’re not you should highly consider looking into Tweetgrid.com.
It’s simple to use and will help you make sense out of your Twitterverse. Here are a few key points (below the video) taken from the FAQ’s of Tweetgrid but check out the 2 minute video on making your #TNL experience the best it can be.
