Tweet your way to recruitment success – a fad or a revolution?

I am probably a bit of a luddite when it comes to technology at times but there is no doubting the impact websites like Friends Reunited, Facebook and now LinkedIn have had.

So what about Twitter on which I am blissfully poorly informed? It seems everyone is jumping on this bandwagon – and a lot of it will be inconsequential stuff where you wonder why anyone would bother posting it.

However, this week I came across this piece about another technophobe’s discovery of Twitter as a successful recruitment tool. Is this a fad or a possible revolution in finding the right people?
