Finding credibility clues on Twitter
By scanning 66 million tweets linked to nearly 1,400 real-world events, researchers have built a language model that identifies words and phrases that lead to strong or weak perceived levels of credibility on Twitter. Their findings suggest that the words of millions of people on social media have considerable information about an event's credibility -- even when an event is still ongoing. Ref. Source 4y.
I really have not used Twitter, I just have an account because when I post to Facebook it also posts to Twitter at the same time. Is this media type good for recruiting? I assume that its only good if someone really famous tweets about your site or retweets your message. One thing I find with sites like this is it encourages bad spelling and instant everything so when a User comes to a site like this they find it restrictive.
In truth, I don't use that many social applications either. I don't find the fascination my kids find in having one's friends be a part of virtually every aspect of one's life. I remember when I was a kid I'd go out and play with my friends and then come home and have time t be alone, to be me. If I needed something or they needed we'd call each other. Now, my kids are constantly tweeting, or twittering, or snap chatting, or whatever. It's too much for me, I want my privacy.
