Thanks for the detailed reply, Marc!!

I agree, the money is in the other side of the table. Maybe if I get enough people subscribed I can end up charging companies to include their jobs tailored for specific searches (like JS, marketing, etc)

I agree with you also on the freemium model. I was thinking of having something like 3 tiers:

  • Basic (Free forever) - You get 3 jobs per day
  • Freelancer - You get 10 jobs per day
  • Agency - You get all of the jobs

But I like also the model you propose, where you get the jobs 1 week in advance

Cheers Marc!

Awesome. I changed your query from 'C#, saas, microservices' to 'C# AND (saas OR microservices)', I think it may bring more results. The original search is equivalent to 'C# AND saas AND microservices', so tweets would have to have all those words in them, less likely.

I'm happy to change it back to the original one tho

Here are the results for the 2 queries:
C# AND (saas OR microservices)

C#, saas, microservices

Glad you liked it Michael, I saw you subscribed as well (thanks!). I add some keywords to the search that make the tweets more likely to be about jobs. It's still improving and I keep modifying it make it better. The main goals are

  • exclude tweets from accounts that are to spammy
  • not exclude tweets that are jobs
  • exclude tweets that are not actual jobs

For example, for someone whose search term is 'remote javascript', the search would be this one: https://twitter.com/search?q=(%22looking%20for%22%20OR%20hiring%20OR%20job%20OR%20jobs%20OR%20position%20OR%20gig%20OR%20contract%20OR%20contractor)%20AND%20(remote%20javascript)%20%20-RT%20since%3A2020-02-18

Did you get an email this morning? If yes, were the results relevant?

Cheers!

Hi!

Ah I see clever, I think the value proposition is indeed in the preprocessing. I did get an e-mail this morning so that worked like a charm. It did have only one item in it, but that probably has to do with my search query. Suggestions for keywords would be a very helpful feature I think. I will try to optimize my keywords a bit and see tge results tommorow! If you want me to test some more things just drop me a line :)
