With approximately 55 million “Tweets” sent per day, Twitter has fast become one of the leading Social Networking tools used by everyone from film stars and musicians to corporate businesses and even world leaders.

Famous for its popular “Hash Tags”, Twitter allows users to categorize their messages so that users can find exactly what it is they are looking for.

Over the past couple of years, Twitter has been utilised by the recruitment industry as a way of drawing in candidates for their vacancies without paying for yearly subscriptions/credits with Job Boards.
