Twitter May Be Good for Something

Anyone who knows me knows that I am anti-Twitter. I am not shy about sharing why I think Twitter is creating little egomaniacal monsters and how its popularity among the masses reminds me of lemmings following each other off a cliff. But…for all of my railing against the Twitter establishment I have managed to come across some organizations and people who seem to be redeeming their time on Twitter well.

The first I found through the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship–I knew Calvin wouldn’t steer me wrong. They provide a links to a few Twitter prayer feeds for praying the Psalms, praying the hours, John Chrysostom’s prayers and prayers of the people. 

The second I found through Carlos Whitaker of Ragamuffin Soul. He mentioned Twiblestudy, a Twitter Bible Study that has been getting great traction. Essentially, a scripture is twitted and people respond in 140 words or less how it resonates with them. 

So there it is folks.

  3. Yeah Jazz Theologian, I just can’t get with Twitter. I think it’s totally a tool for self-aggrandizement–although I recognize people could say the same about blogs. But I like to think, hope, and pray people get a little bit more here.
