I am amazed at how quickly Twitter is taking over the communication world. For a lot of people, it is like a micro blog. The beauty of Twitter is that it only gives you 140 characters to type a message or an update. This disciplines you to share only what is important; and also it is convenient to update more regularly on the happenings of your life.
You can set it up so that the Tweets (the messages sent on Twitter) are directly sent to your phone as a text message. I am realizing that text messaging or SMS is here to stay. In fact, I am finding myself connecting with people more through text messages than through a phone call or even e-mails at various times. When you are not able to use your phone, it is just easier to read a text message. It saves time! Think about all the time it takes to check your voicemail and then call that person back.
With the useful technology of Twitter, we have decided to use Twitter to communicate to our church members. We have started up a HMCC account.
We will be sending various announcements and reminders through Twitter. Most importantly, if there are emergencies or information that you need to know right away, then you will be able to receive it in real time through Twitter. It will be definitely faster through a text message than finding the time to check e-mail.
