What Recruiters Are Tweeting, Retweeting, and Reading

by Jun 28, 2013, 6:10 am ET

Ever wondered what recruiters are tweeting about, and whose tweets are most being retweeted?

A company called Leadtail put together a report for us on just that. Leadtail studied 310 U.S.-based recruiters (about half in house, about half from agencies) from March 21 to June 20 of this year, totaling 55,576 tweets.

These recruiters reached 835,336 followers. Here are some of the findings.
