I am learning first hand a point that is made in this Minneapolis StarTribune career article, you never know who is watching your online activity and in this case my Twitter stream.
(I have added links…)
Twitter is a 140-character blogging tool that serves as a firehose of information to your desktop or smartphone. Among the valuable information you can get: job postings and tools to keep you up to date and in the know.

Twitter allows users to create a free account, then send and receive 140 word "tweets" on almost any topic - including job-hunting.
The Human Resource Professionals of Minnesota devoted their 2009 conference in October to "Social Media and HR."
Paul DeBettignies, a Twin Cities social media expert and IT recruiter, was a presenter at the conference. He sent these "tweets" from his @MNHeadHunter Twitter account:
- 72 percent of companies plan to invest more in recruiting through social networks.
- Ameriprise has created an Interactive Recruiting position.
- The "main takeaway" is "get involved now or get left behind."
