Find local candidates on Twitter

I use Twitter to market some of my websites, and for general mass distribution of posts, but until now I’ve not found it to be the most effective recruiting tool.  I’ve found a few good ways to recruit with Twitter, and I’ll be sharing them in the coming weeks.  This first post focuses on finding local candidates, and it is pretty easy.

To search Twitter by location, simply add near:Seattle (any city or zip code will work) to your search string.  So a query for Sharepoint near Seattle would result in something like below.  This will show you who is talking about Sharepoint near Seattle. These folks may not necessarily be Sharepoint experts, but it is a large enough part of their life to tweet about, so they either possess some level of expertise or know somebody who does.
