The next frontier of social networking: Twitter

Twitter is burning up the Internet, racking up over three million accounts registered as of July 2008.  Tens of millions of “tweets” (short, 140-character-max posts) have crisscrossed the Web, often about breakfast, the day’s chores or other trivial things.  Don’t be too quick to dismiss Twitter, though; it’s easy to use and, like Facebook and MySpace before it, has tons of business potential.

Try setting up an account and following your friends, co-workers, and even companies.  You never know who you could hear from, or what opportunities could open up.  Since posts are fast and to the point, you can also use Twitter to keep co-workers and business partners up to date on projects.

Maybe most importantly, Twitter offers short bursts of information about topics important to you.  Yoh’s Twitter page is updated several days a week with quick tidbits for job seekers.  Give it a shot; in no time, you’ll be Tweeting away like a pro.
