We created a Twitter bot that collects and retweets high impact job offers. To do so, the bot regularly checks whether it has been mentioned by someone in a tweet.

  • If the tweet that mentions @effective_jobs is a stand-alone tweet, it will retweet that tweet
  • If the tweet that mentions @effective_jobs is a reply to some other tweet, it will retweet that other tweet to which the person mentioning @effective_jobs has replied to (A posts tweet, B replies with "@effective_jobs", and the bot retweets the original tweet A made).

When you see a high impact job offer on Twitter that may be relevant to the EA community, you can simply reply to that tweet and tag @effective_jobs. The bot will retweet it and make the job offer more visible to the EA community. If you're looking for a job, you can follow it or scroll through all past tweets made by the bot. 

We're happy about any feedback, feature requests and contributions. The best way for this is to create an issue on github (or even better, submit a pull request), but comments here are also helpful.
