NEW TWEETERS NEEDED
Long after the world relied on the beating of jungle drums or beacon fires the printed word helped the spread of news and information. The Times began publishing in 1788.
Broadcasting of radio and television, aided by satellites speeded up communication to create what someone termed “the world as one vast global village”.
The internet and world wide web have only been around for 28 years but has revolutionised the way we pass on and receive information.
News travels fast but sadly, as we are learning, fake news and “alternative truths” can travel even faster. That is why, as Christians, we stand firm for the truth – as followers of the Lord who says “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life”.
In the Diocese in Europe a small team of volunteers shares our ministry of Tweeting information every day. It may be your morning reminder of topics for prayer for the day. It may be a fresh news story linked to our diocesan website. If there is a major news story breaking, that impacts on our diocese or churches in it, you will be the first to know. If you haven’t signed up yet, join the 850 and more who follow us on Twitter @dioceseineurope
We are looking for one or two people who regularly use Twitter to join us as a member of the team (The Glorious Company of Tweeters). It would get you sending out daily tweets and re-tweeting news on behalf of the diocese and would involve you for just one week in eight.
It’s rewarding, challenging and fun. Just ask the tweet team who followed General Synod last week!
Please can you help?
