Books I’m In: Tweeting Church
It is such an honor to be mentioned in a book, and especially this one! Paul Clifford has recently released an ebook called Tweeting Church: Good News in Only 140 Characters. I was able to meet Paul while he was writing this book, and so he wrote a section about me since we have such common goals and ideas relating to churches and social media! This book is a very detailed look at how churches and ministries can be effective on Twitter. The Amazon book description:
We live in a time marked by change. Electronic communications enable any message to reach virtually any person in virtually any part of the world. In this world, how can something originally written so long ago compete? Is the message that was originally called “Good News” still as relevant in the age of electrons as it was in the time of papyrus?
In the follow-up to his successful book Podcasting Church, Paul Clifford seeks to answer these questions and more:
What is Twitter?
What kind of account should you have?
How can you regularly tweet without repeating yourself?
How do you keep spammers at bay?
How can you reach people that need to hear Christ’s message?
This is a book for every Christian interested in spreading Christ’s message of hope and forgiveness, in an age increasingly marked by distraction and background noise, needs to read. This is an opportunity that the Church can’t pass up to communicate its message.
