JibberJobber Development Story – Part II (Twitter + JibberJobber)

May 22nd, 2009
This weekend is the last chance to take advantage of the sweet upgrade celebration for JibberJobber – click here to learn what you get if you upgrade!

Wednesday I blogged about the history of the development team, and mentioned we have a list a mile long.  Let me share an example of what we do… just a few days ago my developer released a new feature allowing you to add someone from Twitter, just using their Twitter handle.  Note: you do NOT have to be on Twitter, or even be logged into Twitter, to make this work.

Here’s how it works:

Login to JibberJobber, go to the Add a Contact page, and click on the Quick Add from Twitter link.

I put in ShirleyFrazier, since she tweeted to me.  Plus she is a basketologist – how could you not want a basketologist in your network?  Never know when that might come in handy!

The contact information is added, and you can see what information we get to pull over from Twitter (all the stuff the arrows are pointing to are automatically brought over from her Twitter Profile).

This is a FREE feature… in a future post I’ll show you how to use Twitter in a job search, which will perfectly dovetail into this feature.

Like I mentioned, we are constantly working on improving the product – whether it’s the user experience, or stuff under-the-hood, this is a full-time job for us, to make your job search and network relationship management just a little bit easier!

JibberJobber is a powerful tool that lets you manage your career, from job search to relationship management to target company management (and much more). Free for life with an optional upgrade.

  1. You know, the recent functionality which I’ve gotten the most mileage from is the new way the log entries database is now set up. The fact that I can start a note on one person, attach that note to any number of action items, locations, companies, jobs, and people as I type or any time after, and that I can even create new contacts, companies, and jobs on the spot from the note, just blows me away.

    Ah, if you could only see the list of stuff that we hope will continue to blow you away – thanks for the feedback on that Sophie, reminds me I need to do a video on it :)

  3. [...] Adding new contacts just by using their Twitter handle. Sometimes I find myself adding a new contact manually, and then remember that I know them because of Twitter.  Alas, you don’t have to use Twitter to make use of this cool feature – the neat thing is we pull in stuff from their Twitter profile, including their picture (!), location, bio, URL, and some stats from Twitter.  It takes about 4 seconds to enter all of that if you have the person’s Twitter handle… so cool!
