To paraphrase Ferris Bueller: recruiting news moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop to check it out once in a while, you could miss it.

As a recruiting professional, you know the industry is changing rapidly.

From new recruiting trends like gamification and video hiring, to advanced features in applicant tracking software, and buzzwords like ‘candidate experience’ now, more than ever, you need a real-time source of recruiting industry information.

And there are few platforms quite as real-time as Twitter.

With over 350,000 tweets sent every minute, the social networking tool is a powerful fire hose of information.

But to get the right information, you need to follow the right people.

Below, I’ve compiled the top 27 recruiting experts on Twitter you need to follow if you want to keep up-to-date with your profession and the fast-moving recruiting world.

These experts were selected based on number of followers, the relevance of their actual tweets to recruiting, and how much I liked them.  They are broken out by individuals, and then publications/organizations.
