As IT recruiters, we use Twitter to post new IT jobs, relevant IT staffing articles, and keep up with our followers. It has become a very important tool to reach candidates who are constantly using social media networks such as this one. The problem with this is that over the past week or so, Twitter has been acting up. So while we are trying to update our followers, we have to wait for the Twitter overload instead of giving information live.
As the amount of Twitter users increase, will there be a problem for IT recruiting companies like AVID Technical Resources, who rely on it to provide updates to our followers? The IT staffing industry specifically relies on getting new IT job postings out there to candidates to make sure they have an opportunity to apply for a job that they qualify as quickly as possible. If the Twitter crashes continue, those IT jobs will not be seen by our candidates right away, thus giving them less of a chance of qualifying for a position. Hopefully the usefulness of Twitter’s capabilities will not diminish as time goes on.
