Job Trend: Professional Tweeters

If getting paid to tweet sounds pretty sweet, you're in luck. An increasing number of companies are creating positions with the primary responsibility of tweeting all day long and in some cases, the job description includes posting on Facebook, too. Businesses are recognizing they're missing out on connecting with customers through these social networking sites and are willing to pay someone to manage that portion of their customer service.

Professional tweeters engage followers and socialize with them by responding to comments that mention the company, and some will even try and cheer up a follower who has tweeted about a bad day. Companies that successfully use Twitter know that hawking products through the site will turn off customers, so professional tweeters are all about socializing and finding solutions.
