Are You a Ninja?

According to research conducted at both Facebook and LinkedIn, an increasing number of people have job descriptions that include the word “ninja” in the title. Both sites have in-house researchers who look at all of the junk that is posted on their respective sites and then try to make sense of it. That is a job I definitely wouldn’t want to have.

According to the chief scientist for LinkedIn, “From 2002 to 2007, there was an increase in job titles using the word “ninja” to designate a position requiring a high level of skill. “Evangelist” and “guru” were other titles that rose during the same period, although guru has since dropped in popularity.” Perhaps someone who decides they are the newest social media god (or goddess) will now call themselves a “Social Media Ninja.” Ohhh I know! Maybe Gordon Ramsay is a Kitchen Ninja!”

Are you a ninja?

You don’t have to be a ninja to grab the latest software and apps we’ve been able to find for you.

Twitter on the iPad

If the world is a stage, then the people on Twitter must be the cast. I don’t know too many people who aren’t registered on the popular social network. The ones who aren’t are missing out, that’s all I have to say. Mark definitely has a handle on Twitter. He knows what apps work, and which ones don’t. Now that he has the iPad, he’s able to tell us what’s best to use on that device.

Tweetie 2 has a ton of cool features and a nice interface. It allows you to have more than one user account, and helps you see what’s happening all over Twitter. Mark noted that when magnified to full-screen, the text looks a little blurry.

Twitterific is another client that was tweaked for the iPad. There’s nothing really new, and it’s not very pleasing to the eye. It is free, so you get what you pay for.

In Mark’s opinion, TweetDeck got it right when it comes to changing things up to work on the iPad. He says that the developers worked hard to make good use of the screen real estate, and that it just plain looks great.

If you have an iPad, what Twitter client are you using on it? What do you love – or hate – about the way Twitter clients work on the device?
