Where is the "results are not typical, yuor experience may vary" disclaimer.

I am sure you got your gigs and she got hers due to experience. You need something to tweet about and people must be interested on what you tweet about.

No different than writing academic papers and books on the pre-tweet era (and still now) Of course now with a lower barrier of entry.

I understand that social media can be a huge catalyst the same as social mingling and networking is. The fact is that some people know how to "work the room" at a party, some don't.

The fact is that it's not that you are tweeting, it is what you are tweeting about.

But I agree everything else being equal, sure, social media, networking, writing books will get you the gig, it always has.
