Great question! Twitter can be a useful way to communicate directly with brands/companies when you want to share your excitement for their products and services. Unfortunately, social media can be tricky to use in your career search, depending on things like what you post on your personal page/who you follow/etc. so I would be cognizant of those details. One way you could use Twitter creatively for your job search is to look for tweets around hiring events and career fairs from companies you're pursuing. You might send the company a DM for more details and explaining exactly why you want to work with that business! Best of luck to you on your job search!
