Idol Chatter

I don’t twitter (or is it tweet?)–though a lot of my friends do. And I hear that you can develop a “following” pretty quickly if your tweets are frequent enough and clever, too.
So perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising that “Some evangelical Christian groups are harnessing these coincident messaging flows to strengthen their religious communication via synchronized prayer,” according to Pauline Hope Cheong in her article, “Twitter of Faith: Microblogging the Divine.”
Apparently, Twitter is also a great evangelizing tool: “Another likely vision for Twitter is as a micro-sharing and mobilization platform for religious organizations. Its open and free message-spreading or “retweeting” meme mechanisms can help build replications and enlarge informational networks.”
Do you Tweet the Faith?
