twitterific?


Sometime ago I heard about this new phenomenon called Twitter and thought it sounded pretty lame. Then I played with it for a while and got hooked. For the uninitiated Twitter is basically a micro blog. 140 characters or less and it lets people follow you all day long. I love it. Between adding updates while I’m online or texting using my snazzy new Curve, I love to Twitter all day long. Unfortunately, though, a day or so ago Twitter had some sort of hiccup and lost a bunch of data. Part of what they lost was a significant number of those who have been subscribed to my Twitter feed. So if you were formerly following me on Twitter or you want to start, click here and get signed up!

Micah is a husband to Tracy & a daddy to Grace, Kessed & Haddon. He’s Senior Pastor at Brainerd Baptist Church in Chattanooga, TN. Most of all, he’s a debtor to grace.

  1. Les-

    Fair question, and to be honest I don’t know that everybody would want to. There does seem to be a fair amount of curiosity out there, however, with “reality tv” that seems to want to see people in authentic situations in “real time”.

    I also think that Mark Batterson made a great point, in reference to Twitter and pastors, when he pointed out that it is a great way to “humanize” a pastor when we typically put them too high on a pedestal. I agree that pastors need to be more “real”, at times, to our people and Twitter seems to really help with that.

    Beyond that, for me it’s just a fun diversion throughout the day. 🙂

  2. Art Rogers’ take on it was pretty humorous, and if I subscribed to feeds then I’d agree. I don’t have twitter yet, maybe I’ll try it out here in your comments first to see how I like it.
