I’ve got I’m not actually a Geek in my google reader and was surprised to find Hutch’s most recent post in a different place – the wordpress dashboard.
Are you ever surprised by these kind of things? You know, like seeing someone regularly at one location, and then being completely thrown off when you see them dressed differently and somewhere else? It always throws me off. It threw me off so much, I wondered if it was the same blog as the one I followed in my reader. Duh, yes it is.
Okay, back to his post – what’s even more interesting is his post entitled How to Tweet your way out of a Job. If you haven’t read it, check it out and see the bonehead move someone made when offered a job with Cisco, and then another link to another bonehead Tweet by a visitor to Memphis.
Let’s step into another person’s shoes and figure out what could be the dumbest way to finish this Tweet:
“I just got offered a job with Cisco and….”
Oh, this could go in so many ways… all bad, I must admit. I wouldn’t even dare tweet anything while at the critical stage of the job offer. Then again, I’ve got to admit I’m not even on Twitter.
Here’s a strange thought – over the past 7 days, I’ve had two completely different conversations about Twitter and why it does not have to be just a time waster or tool for making real bonehead moves. Strange, coming from someone who hasn’t even signed up. Sometimes, I wonder if these are signs on my journey of life. Am I supposed to sign up or something now that I’ve made my case for why it can be good? Or is the sign telling me I better not sign up because I might make a real bonehead move myself? 🙂
What are your thoughts about Twitter? Do you, or do you not? And why/why not?
