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?  How will you use this new technology in ministry?

In the follow-up to his successful book Podcasting Church, Paul Alan 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Twitter, a New perspective September 5, 2012
By Ryan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ever since I began my journey into different social networks, like most people Myspace was the first, but then facebook shows up and changes everything. When Twitter popped up I was like: "REally? a network that I can just post my thoughts all day, I don't want people to know when I'm walking up the stairs."

As a Christian going to a private christian college I had never thought about tweeting much, I got a twitter once but it was for a contest, then I never used it again. Until one chapel theys tarted talking about the them being hashtag related, and then a friend of mine from home messaged me on twitter and told me about this book all at once. So I flipped through a few pages, and was intrigued, so I promptly started reading it. After a while I began to tweet with new fervor, and not just me walking up the stairs.

Tweeting Church, puts twitter in a whole new light, showing not just pastors and church goers how to better use the social networking of constant updates. There are so many different ways to use the medium, and to get the message of the Good Lord out into the world. AS well as updating on other things that might interest you that you can be a help to those who may need it an don't think they do. Specially since Twitter is a medium where you follow people and get updates daily. I have learned so much from this book, and I really cant explain the things that I learned without writing the book here. I hightly recommend this to anyone who has thought Twitter was just a place to put your daily routine every five minutes. It is so much more than that.

I thought this book was very good. It had a lot of good information about how to use Twitter effectively. I am relatively new to tweeting, and this book has helped me understand the world of Twitter in less than a day. I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about Twitter and how to effectively use Twitter. Good Read! @acoonjr

4.0 out of 5 stars Twitter is going big time!! May 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Twitter is a great social media tool for all ministries and this book helps them learn how to use it in the best ways. The way this book breaks down how to use it, why to use and when to use it makes for an easy to follow guide for churches.

5.0 out of 5 stars The strength of this book is principle April 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for some megabook jam-packed with "secret" Twitter strategies, this is probably not the book for you.

If you are looking for an honest, godly perspective on using Twitter to the glory of our Heavenly Father, then it is. It definitely keeps the promises made in the description.

Tweeting Church offers plenty of tips to help beginners feel comfortable on Twitter and really start building relationships. It is written in simple language, and it constantly affirms the biblical principle of "doing unto others as you would have them do unto you."

Paul shares many resources. Even if you have been on Twitter awhile, there may be something new to you in there. But the strength of Tweeting Church is really principle.

If you want to be inspired to grow in your own Christian walk even as you seek to reach out to others, give this book a try!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great to learn Twitter April 7, 2013
By Muz7
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book that explains how Twitter works. While written to the church, it's information can be easily applied for the individual. Very handy for the person / organisation that has been pottering around on but now wants to become more serious about their social media presence.

5.0 out of 5 stars good resource March 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm still new to tweeting but found this book helpful and inspiring. I need to learn more basic information about tweeting, but after I do, I see this book as a good reference. I started a blog for notes from my pastor's teachings. It has been helpful to our church members and others. I'm thinking that tweeting may also serve to share good information with others. I recommend this book, but probably for someone who is a least a bit familiar with twitter.

More About the Author

Paul Alan Clifford (December 19, 1973- ) was born in Louisville, Kentucky to parents who thought that they couldn't have children. He grew up with the thought that he was meant to do something unusual with his life. This unwavering feeling led him to seminary where he learned that his interest in technology could be used by God.

He married his beautiful wife, Christina, in 1999 with whom he raises their two daughters, Trinity and Eliana. He founded TrinityDigitalMedia.com in February of 2011 to fulfill his dream to give his life away to the Acts 2 vision of the Church -- bringing people to know the forgiveness and love of Jesus.
