Tweetizen is not the next generation tweezer

One our rockstar sourcers recently gave a presentation on 4 twitter tools, one specifically is worth mentioning as it's newer and with the popularity of twitter, it allows you to filter.

Tweetizen is a fairly new application described as “a simple web-based tool designed to help you filter the daily influx of tweets, and easily find the ones that are relevant to you.” While Twellow groups people into categories, Tweetizen combines tweets into categorized groups. You can search their predefined groups (and make your own) to find people discussing certain topics, such as the “programming” group which will display people talking about programming or people who may be programmers. From the Tweetizen screen you are able to send direct messages, reply or retweet messages
to other Twitter users.
Tweetizen also has a “jobs” group on their homepage which will automatically display job-related results. The jobs group is another good way to connect with other recruiters and find companies who are looking for candidates.

Another way to find job postings via Twitter is TwitJobSearch.com which is a new job search engine for Twitter, but it’s not your typical Twitter search application. Most Twitterbased search tools only seek out keywords within tweets or from a user’s profile whereas TwitterJobSearch uses contextual search algorithms (similar to Google) to identify tweets as job postings. William Fischer, TwitterJobSearch founder, describes it as a “semantic search engine for Twitter and the first search engine to go ‘beyond the tweet.’” TwitterJobSearch works in a way that is comparable to Indeed or SimplyHired but is solely for finding jobs posted through Twitter.

The other 2 tools worth re-mentioning as they have evolved since their first mentions back in 2009:

Twellow is an open directory that groups Twitter users into multiple categories based upon the keywords in their profile. You can also use Twellow to connect and network with other recruiters by typing “recruiter” in the main search field. If you wanted to find a recruiter in your local area you could simply type “Recruiter Houston” for example, and the results will show local area recruiters. Twellow’s search feature works amazingly well and you can find almost anyone on Twitter who works within a particular industry or profession.

Twitter Search offers similar search functionality to Google or other major search engines by allowing either basic keyword searches or advanced Boolean searches. For those not familiar with Boolean search operators, you can use the “Advanced search” featured to produce the Boolean results automatically. Advanced Twitter search will allow you to search on many different variables, such as location, keywords, people and even attitudes.

Another way to find job postings via Twitter is TwitJobSearch which is a new job search engine for Twitter, but it’s not your typical Twitter search application. Most Twitterbased search tools only seek out keywords within tweets or from a user’s profile whereas TwitterJobSearch uses contextual search algorithms (similar to Google) to identify tweets
as job postings. William Fischer, TwitterJobSearch founder, describes it as a “semantic search engine for Twitter and the first search engine to go ‘beyond the tweet.’” TwitterJobSearch works in a way that is comparable to Indeed or SimplyHired but is solely for finding jobs posted through Twitter.

Thanks for the tools. I've never used Tweetizen. I will check it out and leave my thoughts.
