Idaho will now tweet job posts

Idaho's Division of Human Resources is posting state government job openings on Twitter.

The popular social networking site will enable the state to more quickly communicate job opportunities and let followers quickly alert friends and relatives about openings, Gov. Butch Otter says.

“When job opportunities come along in state government, we need to get the word out to more of those qualified folks who need the work – where they are most likely to find it,” Otter said in a prepared statement. “The immediacy and interactive nature of Twitter should be a real asset for the state and for targeting Idahoans who are unemployed or underemployed.”
