The 50 First Tweets in #HR & #Recruiting

As 2014 comes to a close and we look forward to 2015, I’ve been doing a lot of personal reflecting about my life as an HR blogger, thought leader and contributor to this industry. Although I started blogging in 2007, it was Twitter in 2008 changed everything for me. It opened my eyes and connected me to new friends, influencers and persons who just inspired while also educated me. Twitter was a fundamental reason I started my consulting business, wrote my book and connected with friends, clients and hired using my favorite 140 character social network.

Having written a book on how to use Twitter called Tweet This! Twitter for Business, I wanted to take a look back at the first tweets of fifty professionals in the HR and recruitment industry. You can find out your own first tweet by clicking here to see for yourself.

I love the first tweet functionality on Twitter. It amazes and excites me to see how Twitter has grown and its use has evolved from simply tweeting what we are doing to being a platform where news breaks. Not to mention how in our own industry Twitter has fundamentally changed how we recruit, source and engage employees.
