As you most likely already know, LinkedIn is a social media platform which is considered to be the word’s largest professional network on the internet. Most people seem to be using it to create an online resume, look for jobs or internships, look for potential candidates, and search for new connections. Though there are people who are pretty active on the platform, and at this point, it would be appropriate to call them LinkedIn influencers.
Recently, a post on Twitter went viral in which a guy shared a hilarious, made-up “success story” created by a LinkedIn user meant to poke fun at Linkedin influencers.
This post on Twitter currently has over 400k likes as well as almost 80k retweets
