Things to consider.

Twitter is a global platform and Tweets are representative of you. Do not post anything on Twitter that you wouldn’t feel comfortable with being in the public domain. It is a digital representation of yourself and you don’t want potential employers reading content that could discourage them from giving you a job.

The best way to think about social media is…

  • A Facebook profile is a digital representation of you to friends and family.
  • A Twitter account is a digital representation of you accessible by the world.
  • A Linkedin profile is a digital representation of you to your professional network.

Post the appropriate content to the relevant platform. You do not need to be on or use every platform
