Finding Twitter users on LinkedIn
I love automation. So, when our sales lead at Streamified told me that he was spending a huge amount of his time crawling through Twitter and other social networks for “cold” sales leads, I realized that I needed to do something.
In less than 6 hours, I built LeadListCreator.com, which does the work of finding a Twitter user on LinkedIn for you. The process is pretty simple, really: it does a Twitter search, and then lets you click on interesting users to cross reference them against LinkedIn.
The only “magic” here is that it’s comparing profiles on a number of dimensions to create a “confidence” score. For example, after searching for the name “Joe Bob” on LinkedIn, it will compare each result’s bio, geographic location, job history, etc. against the Twitter profile. The higher the intersection between the data, the better the chances that the user is who we are looking for.
