A few years ago social networks on internet were unthinkable, something depicted from science fiction stories. Meanwhile things have changed, the internet became a part of every day life, but something remained the same as the times it was only in the imagination and plans of few people: the employers are always asking for references. Long, long time ago, when the world was in a galaxy without internet, the old fashion way as to phone the previous employer and ask him (or her) about how kind of people was the employee wanabe. Lately the job of asking references has became a lot more easier: it’s enough to search and browse the guy’s social network accounts.
The quality and the quantity of people’s tweets can be a good judge for the one who’s writing or sharing them. Some people made history with what they said, in bad and good ways… and they are or were remember for that: something written in a moment of stupidy or rage can follow the writer for the rest of his life. On the other hand, almost no employer will be interested in someone that’s loosing his time tweeting instead of doing the job he is hired to do. More, nobody will be interested in someone foolish, who speaks or writes stupid things or, at least, nothing of values.
