The Twitter Track by James Mayes

August 9, 2010

Keen watchers of the UK recruitment conference circuit will have noticed I’ll be getting involved in #TruManchester, 8/9th September. If the previous Tru events are anything to go by, it’ll be a free-flowing affair – open and collaborative learning with a healthy dose of networking.  I’m delighted Bill’s invited me to get involved in the Twitter track and I’m sure there’s much I can add.  I’m equally sure that the “question & discussion” environment of the Tru events will see me learning a few new things too.

So what can you expect of me?  Well, I plan to stick very much to the Tru spirit – no PowerPoint, we’re going for full-on participation.  I’d like to cover a number of aspects, but of course, this will be guided entirely by those present.  The focus will clearly be use of Twitter in the recruitment sector – but there are a number of points which don’t often get discussed by the recruiters I speak to on a regular basis, including:

  • Interaction between Twitter and other social platforms
  • Twitter’s plans for growth and revenue
  • The continuing evolution of geo-locational tools

Now comes the real unconference part of the post…  these things are MY current Twitter interests.  I want to know about yours.  Whether you’re attending in person, or plan on following via the hashtag, let me know where you need more.  I don’t want to wait till September to have this conversation.

The #tru conferences are certainly real-life events, but they are ongoing communities as well; if the sharing starts here, the discussion on the day will most certainly be the stronger for it – and it’ll prove, very publicly, that we practice what we preach.
