marshall kirkpatrick Admittedly these are still very small numbers. In my home town of Portland, Oregon for example there are 41 listings that mention Twitter so far this month – out of 3,400 listings total. That’s just over 1%. Note also that some number of these listings in some cities are posted by recruiters with their Twitter profiles listed (that probably says something still) and real-estate startup Redfin is looking for two agents in most of the cities we searched.None the less, it’s a fun list and may say a rough something about social media adoption by businesses in different places. Businesses that are down with the internet are generally down with the Twitter, it’s emblematic of adult social media use these days. Most of the jobs listed were for marketers who would broadcast over Twitter, but customer service jobs were well represented too. There’s a whole world of business opportunity on Twitter that’s based on listening, but that will take a while to catch on.Of course not all of these are good jobs – would you want to be “a full-time, experienced social media expert” working for $10 an hour? How would you like to be a community manager for a company that’s raised $6 million in high-profile venture capital? “This is a part time unpaid job for 3-4 months that could lead to a full time position. Around 20hrs per week, but must come every day to the office.” Times are tough, but those positions are a far cry from what some top bloggers and social media consultants are making. There could be some real gems hidden in these listings, though, and it would be interesting to study rates of pay in social media by location.Are there any secret enclaves we didn’t think to look in?

Nagpur – The Maharashtra Legislative Council was adjourned for the third consecutive day on Wednesday following heated exchanges between members of the ruling and opposition parties.Members from both sides marched to the well of the Council thrice and shouted slogans in front of the Chairman. Members of the ruling dispensation alleged that their counterparts in the Opposition were stalling proceedings by misusing their majority in the Council. The opposition members accused the government of running away from the debate on the loan waiver.Dhananjay Munde, Leader of Opposition in the State Council, said, “The business of the day must be suspended and we should start debates on issues such as the loan waiver and the agricultural crisis in the State.”Meanwhile, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Girish Bapat said that the government was ready for debate and requested members of the House to maintain order. He said, “There is a discussion scheduled on the issue. We shall go ahead with that. But the Opposition must let the House function.” However, members of the opposition continued to shout slogans and Deputy Chairman Manikrao Thakre adjourned the House for the day. Leader of the House and Revenue Minister Chandrakant Patil said, “The opposition is trying to shut our voices on the basis of majority. We will approach the Governor.”Peasant and Workers Party leader Jayant Patil refuted the charges. He said, “Raising farmers’ issues is not suppressing voices but empowering them. The government is insensitive to farmers’ issues.” read more
