We all know by now that social media can be a great networking tool used to make valuable contacts in any industry. Many people even use social media to assist them in their job search. On Twitter, going about it can be tricky because it only takes one auto-DM or cheesy tweet to go from potential hire to unfollowed spam. Using Twitter to find job can be a great experience since you will get to meet people you may never have the opportunity to meet otherwise. However, perception is everything, and learning social media nuances is critical if you want to be taken seriously.
There are great articles on Forbes, CBS Money Watch, Lifehacker and many other reputable sites about how to find a job using Twitter.
