Or if you're a personal chef, you can tweet out recipes. Just be mindful that unless your account is private, anyone in the world can read your tweets.

Be sure to use appropriate hashtags so that more people can find you. Before you know it, you'll be an industry authority.

Follow the right people: "Twitter is full of great content, experts, forums and resources. There are also thought leaders, brands and organizations to follow that could be helpful for job seekers," writes Miriam Salpeter of U.S. News & World Report."Once you find people tweeting about content that interests you, it's much easier to see its professional value. Search for recruiters, people who work in organizations that interest you and the Twitter streams from companies themselves."
