Finally I was convinced by a friend that I should join twitter. Of course, I had heard all the good things about twitter but I had no idea there was so much potential. As you can imagine, like million others I got hooked and so far have spent quite a few time mingling and searching for twitter profiles. As I was going through some twitter profiles I found many corporate twitter profiles out there. Companies that have thousands of employees. I also saw a few job recruiting companies that had their twitter profile up and they were “participating” pretty actively. While I was looking around and trying to soak in all I could, I came across HRBot. This profile really struck me so I decided to post the twitter conversation here.
Before we get into the twitter conversation let’s see what HRBot would say if it were Optimus Prime from the Transformers,
Before Social Media began, there was web 1.0. We now know Social Media holds the power to create communities and fill them with life. That is how social web was born. For a time, we lived in harmony, some wanted it for good. Others, for evil. And so, began the war. Users scattered across the web, using it to do nothing but cover with filth and yet sustain a corporate life. Searching every community. Every platform. And just when all hope seemed lost, message of new discovery drew us to an unknown recruiter called ….HRBot. The bot unlike the transformers is right on time.
note : the twitter conversation starts at the bottom so please read from the bottom to top
(the twitter conversation below contains profanity which we do not promote or use on applicant.com. However, it is necessary for us to not block any profanity in the image to show as it is )
We contacted the HRBot and this is what the bot had to say (of course it was an automated message cause well, its a bot ),
With the human recruiters gone, I cannot return to my planet. And fate has yielded its reward : a new world to call home. I live among its people now, hiding in plain sight, but watching over them in secret, waiting, protecting. I have witnessed their capacity for courage, and thought we are worlds apart, like me, there’s more to them than meets the eye. I am Optimus Prime HRBot, and I send this message to any job seekers taking refuge among social media platforms : I am here, I am watching.
Before you use social media, watch what you say and what you do. HRBot might not exist today but someday it might just bubble out of nowhere.
