For the past two months I have purposefully worked to learn more about Twitter.
Why do we need it?As I started to experiment, I realized 4 important facts:
How can I glorify God through this?
- People do read 140 characters.
- People will ReTweet (RT) your messages.
- People can be brought together.
- Twitter can be a powerful method for evangelism and conversation.
However, because Twitter is so huge, messages can get lost in all the chatter. It is necessary to find one another to spread the Good News.
For this reason Inscribe has chosen #ICwriters as their own Hashtag. Hashtags are made with the # symbol in front of words so they are easily searchable (even in Facebook).
If you are not on Twitter, I urge you to sign up. It is easy. Follow this Twitter link.
I believe if we all pull together on this we can make a strong vibrant community for Christ.
Here is an example of a Tweet with a Hashtag: (This link is Tweetable if you click on it)
http://ow.lysc950 How to Use Twitter to Reach God's People #ICwriters Can we use Twitter to glorify God? @InscribeCWFWhenever we use #ICwriters, others can search and then ReTweet. Also I have been asked to try look after @InscribeCWF Twitter. I will be RTing all the #ICwriters through Inscribe.
So anytime you have made a post or want to connect with other Inscribers use the #ICwriters and it will be sent out.
This feature can look like a web.
Do you see the possibilities?
Whenever you write a Tweet, use #ICwriters and let's see how we can build a Twitter #ICwriters community and spread God's Word.

Personally I use the following Hashtags if you are interested:
#UTCOP - Under the Cover of Prayer
#john316books - John 3:16 Network to which I belong
#SundayStillness - a blog page with linky so others who write about God's Word can join in
