Job: Build Twitter Following


Scriptlance is a job auction slash project management site; You post up the job you want done – a website created, graphic design of a logo or editing of a document – and the members bid to do the work. Project milestones, escrow payments at milestones, yada yada.


how many of you are thinking – oh yay! great idea!? Well, before you skip off, remember


(background to Twitter Reputation Mangement)

The long tail of Google search means that an unthought through strategy today is reputation and trust impact tomorrow. Of course if you are really not thinking at all, you’ll get a bunch of followers and then tweet

Cisco just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of a fatty paycheck against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work. (CiscoFatty website)

… and then one of those followers forwards it to the hiring manager.

No company social media training and guidelines in the world is going to protect unthinking fools from Google search.

  1. Someone is willing to pay build a Twitter following http://twurl.nl/pig3r3 haha who’s up for it? Wonder how much? 7 bids so far…

  2. I think this might actually become more common as Twitter et al become more popular as a copy writing service.

    Not many people can be interesting enough in 140 characters to get retweeted and attract followers quickly without engaging in mass following.

    It will just be a shame that this practice will encourage people to only connect within small, trusted groups to avoid getting their feed spammed by a once interesting account.

    1. But they are. You add 5000 people but only talk to 3 who are friends, forgetting the others are in over-hearing distance 😛
