LinkedIn has become the talk of Twitter after a voice message from ‘Jimmy from LinkedIn’ was shared and went viral on social media.
Social media is often regarded as a desolate wasteland of Twitter trolls and fake news but it’s always worth remembering that the internet is a great way of connecting with new people and often brings about plenty of light-hearted fun and laughs.
Saying that, ‘LinkedIn’ and ‘fun’ are two words that are rarely used in the same sentence together but one user’s recent experience with the networking site has left a lot of people in fits of laughter.
That’s because of a connection a woman by the name of Candice had with a LinkedIn user who dubbed themselves ‘Jimmy from LinkedIn.’
Normally, a connection on LinkedIn probably wouldn’t lead to much but in this case, Jimmy from LinkedIn went viral after sending Candice a hilarious voice message to introduce himself.
Introducing Jimmy from LinkedIn
On July 22nd, a Twitter user by the name of Candice shared a voice message from a recent connection on LinkedIn which quickly went viral.
“Hello Candice, how are you doin’ and good morning,” a man says, before saying, “This is me, Jimmy from LinkedIn.”
The message, while a little strange and unexpected, is pleasant enough as Jimmy, whose full name appears to be Jimmy Diggs, introduces himself and thanks Candice for the connection on the site.
Clearly confused, Candice took to Twitter to share the voice message alongside the caption “Was this really necessary Jimmy from LinkedIn?????”
At the time of writing, it has been just over 24 hours since the video was uploaded and in that time, it has been viewed 3.9 million times.
Meet Jimmy Diggs
Jimmy from LinkedIn’s full name is Jimmy Diggs and according to the Daily Dot, is a self-proclaimed “networking specialist.”
Jimmy Diggs’ profile states that he is the owner of J.T. Diggs Enterprises, which appears to be based in Pasadena, California.
In a follow-up tweet, Candice made an appeal saying: “don’t go harassing Jimmy. I’m sure he meant no harm and it was honestly funny to me. A little weird but funny.”
Social media reacts
The viral video of Jimmy from LinkedIn’s message has sparked a huge reaction online and has spawned countless memes from fans online.

While this video response, complete with jazz backing music, makes it sound as if Jimmy is a late-night radio host.
