Twitter Goes Catholic:
Pope Calls for Christian Presence on Social Networking Sites
Facebook, MySpace and Twitter should be used by Christians looking to bring "truth, proclamation and authenticity of life" to the web today, the Pope said in his message for the 45th World Day of Social Communications. If technologies are used with wisdom, the Pope explained, "they can contribute to the satisfaction of the desire for meaning, truth and unity which remain the most profound aspirations of each human being."
I have used Twitter to share Catholic content, and currently follows 34 feeds on Twitter, and am followed by 61. Here are just a few of the excellent Christian Twitter feeds that I have found. Join today and start adding your own contribution of “meaning, truth and unity”.
