  1. The title of this article caught my attention because when I scroll through my twitter timeline, the tweets of the people I follow are not always something that I believe an employer would like seeing! If everyone tweeted like their job depended on it, I don’t think a lot of people would tweet some of the things they do. With it’s easy access and freedom to say what you want- many people do not filter what they say.
