Recruiters seem to have a love-hate relationship with Twitter. Some recruiters have had great success using it was a recruiting tool; others just don’t get it. Launched today, Twitter Engage provides real-time data and insights that allow you to get to know, connect with, and build target audiences.

Regardless of what has or has not worked in the past, with the launch of this new app, Twitter is giving us a way to form better relationships with candidates and influencers. The best part is that now you can see what is working and what is not. It is about damn time. Jack Dorsey, Twitter CEO and Co-founder said:

Video is becoming increasingly central to the real-time conversations happening on Twitter. We’re investing heavily in videos and creators. We want to be the best place for creators and influencers to build an audience and make it easier for creators to make money on Twitter, and soon Vine.
