A question about my driving record.

I am turning thirty this year, and in my eleven years on the road I've only been in three accidents. Two of them in 2005, and a third in 2007. The two in 2005 were my fault, and I was ticketed. They both happened within my first year of driving a vehicle. The third accident in 2007 was not my fault, and I was not ticketed. I've had no tickets or citations since those two in 2005, except a citation I received in 2010 for not having my insurance card on me. (I had insurance, but forgot to put the card in my wallet.) The insurance citation wasn't considered a moving violation, and since I was able to later provide proof of insurance I paid that ticket and moved on. Here is my question. Will the two accidents I caused in 2005 disqualify me from becoming a truck driver? Neither of them were a DUI. Thanks in advance for answering my question.

Passed the pre-trip today

Here is the link to it:

Daniel's Pre-Trip Inspection

I clicked the link and discovered error boxes instead of pictures. The error boxes say "This ImageShack image has expired, see more new images on RainApp." Is there a way to fix this? This guide looks very helpful, and I would love to be able to see what Daniel B. is describing. Thanks in advance!

How big are trucking companies on social media profiles?

Do they require candidates to have Facebook and/or Twitter accounts? When in interviews within the last few years, did the recruiter ask about yours? The reason I am asking this is because I have neither. I am an introvert (one of the reasons I consider truck driving a viable career opportunity for me). I'm just not one of those people who likes to hang out with families and friends. I'm much more content playing video games or watching television in my spare time. Though I have a career in retail where I provide customer service on an almost daily basis, that is about the extent of my social interactions with people. Can any of this disqualify me when applying for a job in this industry? Thanks in advance for your time and consideration regarding my questions.
