Twitter and Micro-prophesying
Posted by Kyle Barton
Last week I attended a week long conference on the Minor Prophets. The revelation itself presented in the messages was truly mind-blowing. But before I blog about that in the upcoming days, I wanted to talk about how the Lord can use technology for His move.
This conference had a designated hashtag for live Twitter updates. It was the first time I had been in a conference that included this feature and I was excited to see how it would turn out.
The Twitter stream added an entirely new dimension to the week.
Updates, highlights, and frameable quotes steadily flowed throughout the messages and study-times. It was an undercurrent of divine activity that provided a compelling reason for anyone not on Twitter to sign up and join the conversation. It also provided a quick and convenient way to review the previous session’s highlights, see what others enjoyed, and find common areas of response. A few scrolls through the Twitter stream and you could easily tell which points the Spirit really spoke through.
A few inspirational tweets that show the divine potential in services like Twitter really caught my attention:
Twitter is micro-prophesying.
Publish glad tidings through Twitter.
The shortest tweet is greater than the strongest memory.

If the gospel is a proclamation, then Twitter seems like an ideal microphone.
What you hear in the ear, proclaim on the housetops.
