It turns out Twitter might not be such a waste of time after all.
In fact, a single retweet may have single-handedly landed a struggling US university student a job.
Back in 2017, Boston University student Chris Sumlin was retweeted by reality star Kim Kardashian when he shared a photo of his first Graduate School paper.
“Wow, this is so cool,” Kim tweeted, sharing the budding television writer’s paper titled Kim Kardashian West: The Reality Star Turned Digital Mogul.

At the time, Chris’ tweet quickly went viral, racking up thousands of likes and retweets.
And just like any millennial in today’s competitive job market would, Chris decided to use the reality star’s retweet to his best advantage.
In the hopes of standing out from fellow job seekers, the 24-year-old added his new ‘accomplishment’ to his CV.
“Retweeted by Kim Kardashian West for impressive work in graduate school,” Chris wrote.
And according to Chris, the new addition to his resume is already paying off on his job search.
Y’all I added that @KimKardashian retweeted my graduate school paper on my resume and I’ve already booked THREE job interviews in less than a week. This woman’s influence is helping me secure a bag. ???????????? pic.twitter.com/uKg15YXVdz
