Proper Twitter Usage for Job Search?

Dear Experts,

If I am supposed to be wary about what I post on my social media accounts when I’m looking for a new job, what should my Twitter strategy be? I’ve read in numerous places I should maximize my job search resources by using social media.

Given the above question, how should I let my Twitter followers know I’m looking for a new job? How should I display my qualifications?
