Using Twitter in ministry

Topic / Technology

Twitter.comAfter hearing all the hype about Twitter I decided to check it out for myself. Honestly, it was largely disinteresting to me. I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking at on the site and why everyone was making such a big deal out of it. So I left only to read even more about this strange phenomenon later and visit the site once again, leaving with the same, Who cares?, question in mind. But then the other night I decided to give it a try and see what all the hype was about and discovered, like almost everyone else, that it does become strangely addictive. Very weird.

So now I’m thinking how we can use this new tool in ministry. The only idea coming to mind is to make an account for announcements to those involved in your ministry. Of course, they all have to be users of Twitter, too.

I guess someone could also create an account for sending a “verse of the day” or something to subscribers, too. I dunno. Anyone else have an idea?
