Twitter Absentee Barry Salzberg Preaches the Importance of Social Media

To our knowledge, Dr. Phil hasn't taken up the Deloitte CEO Twitter torch since he replaced Jim Quigley, so you'll excuse us if we take this comment from Salzberg's talk at Brooklyn College as a little disingenuous: 

During the meeting, Salzberg advised students on their careers and answered questions about professional advancement, such as how students can use social media for career purposes. “Social media is here to stay, and we have to adapt,” he said, describing an internal program Deloitte uses to support live chats between its employees. “You have to find a way to make social media to work for you.”
Sure, there are other forms of social media that BS could be engaging, but Twitter seems like a natural fit, given the firm's history. We're not asking for the moon here. Some Instagrams and a Foursquare check-in from Davos would do us fine.
