Why We Twitter

JohnB – “it’s like the shared experience of saying “hey, look at that” to the stranger or friend next to you.”

mikehannah – “way better than blogging, part of it is convenience, but more than that.”

JonathanTBryant – “I think it works because people (deep down) wanna know what their friends are doing and what’s going on in their lives.”

peculiarplace – “offers me a chance to communicate with people I otherwise might not ever have a chance to communicate with.”

jillharris – “because we were created for and crave community

aronstrong – “it’s fast, personal and great for networking”

garylamb – “I love it way better than blogging right now. Quick and easy. No room for fluff.”

shaunking – “because it is not only quick & easy, but gives me a peak into the lives of all types of people & leaders”

jodicwilliams – “for me it’s neat to get a little glimpse into the day of people I find interesting…gives a sense of connectedness

lukemundy – “it’s easy, effective, and engaging!”

Churches are in the business of creating community. We gather people for worship. We encourage people to serve in community. We orchestrate paths for people to gather in groups to learn and to share life.

Are there any glimpses of how God has designed his people for community that are reflected in the world of Twitter? Is there anything we can learn from the success of Twitter that may apply in our ministries?
