UK Sourcers News – 8th May 2012

More than 2,000 UK Recruitment types listed on Twitter

When I started UK Sourcers back in 2009 I had a mission to list as many recruitment related twitter accounts from the United Kingdom as I could. Twitter lists were new and this was how I first discovered that the maximum number of people you can have in a list is 500. Did you know that?

The UK Recruitment Types Twitter list is now in it’s 5th part! That means I’ve listed more than 2000 recruiters from the UK. Want to follow UK Recruiters? It’s a good place to start
