Source Candidates within a Targeted Network using Twiangulate
Let’s take a look at a free web-based tool called Twiangulate. It is a Twitter tool that allows you to look at connections between different Twitter profiles. There are a few different search options you can do within the tool. Use it to discover new people to follow, influencers, or you can add some relevant keywords to a search and source some great candidates.
Use it to see who is following or is followed by two different twitter names. This can help you identify people that are interested in a specific company or influencer, for example, people who are following both @RecruitingTools and @DeanDaCosta are probably interested in Sourcing.
Enter one or two Twitter names, and Twiangulate will show you the 100 most influential profiles following those accounts.
What’s even cooler is the keyword search. Pop in some keywords (something like Java AND Developer) and the search results will show who is talking about that topic. Find 2 accounts that are leading the conversation, and see who is following them both. Some of them will be companies, some of them could be potential candidates. You can look at who’s following them with Twiangulate. Add these people to a list and then from there, use a scraping tool to pull out contact information.
