Twitter is expanding its suite of features, potentially to attract more users to the platform. The social networking site appears to be testing a new feature that allows verified companies to post job openings on their profiles. While Twitter hasn’t officially announced this feature or its plans for release, some insiders claim to have seen tests conducted with select organizations. The working title for this unannounced feature is ‘Twitter Hiring’.
Nima Owji, a tech tipster and app researcher, shared a screenshot of this upcoming Twitter feature on July 20. The tweet explained that Twitter plans to let companies post up to five job openings simultaneously, aiming to help companies find top talent for their available positions.
#Twitter will allow verified organizations to import all their jobs to Twitter by connecting a supported ATS or XML feed! :rocket:

When interested applicants click on a hiring post, they will be redirected to the company’s website that posted the job.
“Twitter has over 528 million users. From software engineers to retail sales to forklift operators, your next hire is here,” the explanation stated.
The idea of giving Twitter a LinkedIn-like twist came to its owner, Elon Musk, when a user suggested that Twitter should add dating features to the app.
At that time, Musk responded, saying it was a good idea and that job openings could also be posted on Twitter.
Interesting idea, maybe jobs too

It seems that Musk is attempting to attract more users and organizations to subscribe to Twitter Blue, the paid features of Twitter, and generate revenue for the company he acquired for around $44 billion last year.
The microblogging app has created an account called @TwitterHiring, which has a verified check mark but hasn’t posted anything yet. Within hours of its launch, the account has already gained 5,308 followers.
It appears that Twitter is focusing on its future path after Meta launched a Twitter-like app called Threads earlier this month.
