I want to put together a list of why Christians shouldn't use Twitter.
Taking suggestions from Christians and heathens alike!
You can be as serious as you wish or as silly as you like.
If we get a collection of top 10 or top 20 (or top whatever) thought provoking or provocative reasons I'll post them on my blog (I won't be making a hub about it) and will link to each contributors profile page.
"If you ask some one to follow you on Twitter you are asking them to tweet you. Why is it tweet and not twit? Oh ... my ... God."
# If you're a Christian you can use Twitter, but you must stop when you get to 665 tweets.
# 140 characters is not enough to bash someone with scripture verses.
I have just been more or less on another planet for 3 days.... Who says christians cant tweet twitter or whatever
The character limit doesn't enable them to send out a text of John 3:16.
# Twitter evolved from the idea of micro-blogging via SMS... and Christians don't believe in evolution.
No where in the Bible does it say using Twitter is permitted by true Christians.
I did, but was not sure if it was just something you had decided on or if it had come from some idea that had been in the newspapers or something...... sorry
As many religious folks interpret the bible or even adapt it to suit their individual purposes, I took a closer look. And yup – plain for all to see. Christians cannot tweet. And here’s why:
I. You shall have no other Gods but me. Including any/all media variety. No blue birds.
II. You shall not make for yourself any idol, nor bow down to it or worship it. *See above
III. You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God. Nor bandy it about on Twitter. Amen.
IV. You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's. Nor his Twittering abilities and Tweet-cred.
V. You shall not steal.Tweep, Twit and/or Re-tweet.
Christians - look away, be strong. Do not follow the Blue Bird ...
God had "thou shalt not tweet" as the 11th commandment, but Moses didn't know what the hell it meant so he ditched it before descending Mt Sinai.
Thou shalt not Twitter because ...
". . . it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks." Acts 6:5
Or this one:
He that toucheth pitch shall be defiled therewith; and he that hath fellowship with a proud man shall be like unto him. [Ecclesiasticus 13:1].
I am sure there's a proud man or two on Twitter ...
Thou shalt not tweet the name of the Lord thy God in Vain.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors tweet(er)
08:30 Eating breakfast
09:00 Reading Bible.
09:05 Passage is confusing, going to find help.
09:09 Writing some self professed Bible scholar
09:12 Reading his answer.
09:17 I don't think he's right.
09:18 e-mailing him now
09:50 have spent half an hour arguing with this man.
14:01 Walking down street
14:07 There's a person. I assume he's lost and unsaved
14:11 Asking if I can share the good news of Jesus Christ with him
14:12 Guy is wondering why I keep texting.
14:13 Guy says that he wants to know.
14:14 Telling this poor lost soul about the sacrifice that Jesus made. I tell him the gift of life is a free gift.
14:17 Mentioning that there's a bunch of catches.
14:20 Guy says he doesn't think he can conform
14:22 Screaming at guy, telling him he'll burn in Hell for eternity.
14:23 Guy is running away
14:24 Chasing after this guy.
14:26 Yelling Hellfire at this man
14:30 Uh oh, I'm being arrested by the police...
And that is why Christians shouldn't use Twitter.
IDK, Kathryn is pretty cool there, as long as you ignore her religious tweets
Christians shouldn't tweet because @Jesus doesn't have an internet connection.

I have never Tweeted my articles and I feel as though that may be a problem. I know I can do better with views, but I just need to know where to post my links. I need to generate more organic backlinks and I am thinking that Twitter may be the place to go. Has it helped you with your views?Thanks!

Hi. I noticed that after I finish writing new hubs I get an option to tweet or something like that, so I finally created a twitter account. Now how do I tweet my already published hubs?

Hi- I was noticing that the traffic source reports include Twitter and Tweet Grid, but not Tweet Deck. I normally use Tweet Deck, because it is much more user-friendly, and auto-refreshes (unlike Twitter home). Also, as with Tweet Grid, anything posted there does feed over...

Generally when I tweet, I add an eye-catching photo. When we share hubs, could a thumbnail image for the hub (the one which appears in hub listings) be optionally added to the tweet?
