When I mention the words social media, what comes to mind?
Twitter is possibly one of the first sites you think of. You are not the only one who thinks this way. Take a look at these recent statistics from Staticbrain.com:
Total number of Active Twitter users: 554,750,000
Number of new Twitter users signing up everyday: 135,000
Average number of tweets per day: 58 million
Number of active Twitter users every month: 115 million
Number of days it takes for 1 billion tweets: 5 days
Number of tweets that happen every second: 9,100
Percent of people who don’t tweet but watch: 40%
The verdict is still out on the effects of Twitter upon ministry. Regardless of differing opinions, Twitter revolutionized how we connect with people, particularly those in ministry. Unlike any other time in history, you are able to follow the daily activities of pastors across the world.
Whether you are an active Twitter tweeter or someone who benefits from others who do, you, if you’re like me, are looking to follow people who has something edifying to say. Scriptural truths, theological insights, and words fitly spoken are at the top of the list.
But with so many pastors on Twitter, whom should you follow? I have compiled a list of pastors to take out the guesswork. The list is in no particular order. When the following pastors tweet, I listen. They are worth your follow.
