30 Ways to Get Fired for using Twitter

Yesterday, I had an opportunity to attend a webinar put on by Arbita. It focused on using Twitter as a recruiter to help promote our staffing company and source candidates. It was full of great ideas that I do hope to implement soon.

However, there was also a brief mention about a blog called ResumeBear where the authors had posted a list called "30 Ways to Lose a Job on Twitter."

I urge everyone who has considered using Twitter to read this article. The examples posted are real! Twitter is a valuable social networking tool, but just like everything on the Internet we all need to be aware of how to use it properly. Many of these things are common sense, but clearly some people aren't considering such things when they chose to post very inappropriate things on a very public forum. Be smart in all your social networking. And enjoy the blog post over at ResumeBear - it is both laugh-out-loud and shake-your-head funny.
