One of the reasons we, and over 90,000 people follow Marc Jacob’s twitter handle is because his CEO Robert Duffy is behind it. And he’s sometimes quite overshare-y which makes @MarcJacobsIntl very entertaining to follow.
Only Robert Duffy has just announced, via twitter, that he’s tweeted his last tweet (this Valentine’s photo, right, is apparently just that). As for who will replace him? According to twitter, Marc Jacobs is looking to hire “someone to come on and take a job heading our twitter acct and social media.” And don’t bother sending over a cover letter and resume, they’re currently interviewing candidates over twitter by soliciting clever tweets. “Be clever. Smart. Understand our DNA. Say it in one tweet! That is your interview!” it says. They’re serious about it, too, it seems: “I just got in trouble from Robert for being arrogant in my tweets. We are being serious. This is a real opportunity.”
So if you’re a twitter fiend who hearts MJ, get those 140 characters ready.
