The world's most controversial social media site continues to add features that no one asked for, with Twitter reportedly testing out job listings on business pages.
Twitter has gotten pretty wild over the last few months. Since Elon Musk took over in October 2022, the platform has seen some interesting additions, including a pay-for-verification system and view counts on tweets.
Now, it looks like the social media platform is getting even more updates, with job listings popping up across Twitter in recent days.
Twitter Testing Job Listings for Businesses
If you've been on Twitter this week, you may have noticed a change to some of your favorite profiles. Well, that is, if your favorite profiles are owned by brands with open jobs that they're trying to hire for.
That's right, Twitter is officially testing out a job listing feature for businesses that are verified with a yellow checkmark. As you can see in the screenshot below, the listings appear directly below your profile bio and can be clicked to direct users to your job listing.
The new feature has been in the works for a few months now, with Musk hinting at the launch in May with nothing more than a reply tweet mentioning the feature. Twitter hasn't even announced the feature officially, but clearly, some businesses already have access.
How to Post Job Listings on Twitter
If you aren't one of the millions of users that have abandoned Twitter in the last few months, you might be interested in utilizing this new feature to post job listings for your business. After all, the talent pool on Twitter can't be that bad, can it?
Well, unfortunately, as is now the case for many of Twitter's features, you aren't going to be able to post job listings on the social media platform without coughing up a hefty sum.
That's right, posting job listings is only available for those that subscribe to the Verified Organizations plan, which comes with additional features and a fancy yellow checkmark. It's not cheap, though; a Verified Organizations account costs $1,000 per month.
Should Your Business Post Jobs on Twitter?
If you're already paying for a yellow checkmark on Twitter, testing out the job listing feature isn't a terrible idea. It's just another way to get your message out there, and it could result in a good, long-term hire, as long as you're willing to scroll through the trolls.
However, if you're thinking about spending $1,000 per month just so you can post jobs on Twitter, we'd recommend investing elsewhere. That's a hefty price to pay for the new feature, particularly when sites like LinkedIn and Indeed are happy to post job listings for a lower price.
On top of that, Twitter isn't going to get less controversial any time soon, which means that your likely pool of applicants may have some strong opinions about conspiracy theories.
