Twitter for Internal Auditors

Written by Steven Randall, Partner, Vonya Global

Twitter basics made easy for Internal Auditors who are just getting started

Link to Steve Randall Twitter AccountIf you are an internal auditor you have probably attended a training class on the Risks of Social Media. If you haven’t attended, you have at least read about such classes. These classes teach you about the things that can go wrong. The lessons probably have you concerned about the Social Media policy at your company and the Social Media use by your fellow employees. If not, it should. Anybody can say anything about anyone at anytime on Social Media. Scary, right? On the flip side, anybody can say anything nice about anyone at anytime. Plus anyone can share knowledge, ideas, and best practices at any time. The fact is there are many valuable conversations going on right now on and if you are not participating, you are missing out.
