I have only personally been using Twitter for a matter of weeks. I’m on the newbie side on tweeting. But you’ve gotta start somewhere.
Mashable recently hosted a blog article on “The Beginner’s Guide to Twitter.” this will be a great place to start. If you have never given Twitter a try and you are looking for basics, read this article. It doesn’t go in depth by any means. It will only give you the basics.
Be forewarned, Twitter can be a huge waste of time. It can intrude on your family life and interfere with your time doing ministry. On the flip side, Twitter can be a great tool for finding news, connecting with other ministry professionals, communicating within your church family, and also finding humor during a hectic day.
I recommend starting with boundaries for yourself. Tell yourself you’ll limit Twitter to particular times during the day and only for a certain amount of time. You can get sucked in. People talk non-stop on Twitter so you could read forever.
If you are determined to begin on Twitter, start with that Mashable article and start tweeting. If you need your first friend on Twitter connect to me at @ministryandlife
