From Jason Buss (@jjbuss
What all started with my first tweet - has continued to evolve into something so much more than answering that simple question - “what are you doing”?
After talking with a good friend earlier this year (@seerysm) about twitter, I decided to give it a try. So I started with a few followers, continued tweeting, networking, and talking with many great people. I even posted a few stories on my blog about twitter, including:
* 6 Benefits of Using Twitter as a News, Networking, and Marketing Tool
* Twitter vs. Plurk: What the Tweeps are Saying
* Social Media and Networking: Ten Twitter Tools
Until… Last night, when I had the opportunity to meet with many thought leaders in the recruiting industry (Don Ramer, CEO & Founder of Arbita
founder Jason Davis; and LinkedIn Guru and Six Degrees from Dave’s
own Dave Mendoza, and The Recruiting Roadshow’s
John Sumser to name a few).
Even more special than that are the stronger relationships, and new friends with those that I have interacted with online for months. A big shout out to @marenhogan
, and @txaggie94
Other tweeps I met: @ttierney, @jokahn, @recruitingblogs, @jphogan, and @johsumser.
A special thanks for the opportunity goes to Paul DeBettignies, Co-Founder and Coordinator of Minnesota Recruiters.
Twitter and many other social media tools have tremendous benefits. Like most things, you’ll get out of it what you put into it.
