If your idea of a dream job involves @'ing and hashtagging your day away, then you probably already know that there are lucrative careers in social media and they can pay pretty well. Knowing the fundamentals of running a business account on Twitter is key, but there's more to it than showing up and hitting the "send" button.

If you want to become the ultimate Twitter expert, you can start by getting a job at Twitter. Sounds like the baseline, right? But if you don't plan on moving to Silicon Valley, there are other ways.

If you want to get a job Tweeting for a living, you should know what a company is looking for when they hire you. Are they are restaurant? You should probably know the basics of Tweeting for a restaurant. It's not just fun and games when you're getting paid to tweet, you have to help your business get paid, too. Master the art of copywriting, analytics and social strategy so that your employer gets a return on their investment.

Next, use Twitter to get the job. Schmooze your way into the position by chatting with influential people at the company on Twitter.

And once you get the job, don't lose it by posting negligent Tweets, trashtalking your boss, or otherwise ruining your Twitter rep.

You've got this. Now apply!
