I’m finalising my research for a new 2011 edition of my book ‘Recruitment via LinkedIn‘ and noticed a strange thing. The number of Tweets in my growing list of connections has dropped considerably.
Four months ago, on 20 September 2010, I had 425 direct connections out of approximately 1150 who added their Twitter account to their LinkedIn profile. That’s approximately one third of total connections. But yesterday, more than 4 months later, I noticed that only 294 of my, slowly growing number of 1263, connections were on Twitter. Or I should say, 23% have added their Twitter account to their LinkedIn profile. This means a drop of 131 (-10%) !
This can only mean two things;
a) my connections are removing the Twitter account from their LinkedIn profile
b) they stop using Twitter
Or is their another reason for this? What do you think is happening?
