Twitter 101

Come and Learn

Join me Tuesday, September 30 at 7pm in Burgess Auditorium where I'll be teaching a Twitter 101 class. This class is open to anyone who is interested in learning about Twitter.

We will start at the very beginning, which is creating an account. The purpose of this class is not to show you how to monitor your child's activity on Twitter. I want to show you how you can use it.

Twitter is a great way to connect with the world. I truly believe that as believers in Jesus Christ, we are missing a great opportunity if we don't engage the culture in this areana. This isn't about keeping up with family members, monitoring your son or daughter on social media, this is about spreading a message of hope to a hurting world.

According to Statistic Brain, there are 115 million people who are active Tweeters each month. The Atlantic reported that Twitter is one of the tools used by ISIS in their reign of terror. If ISIS sees the value in Twitter, what are we missing?

So, what exactly is Twitter? How is it different from Facebook? While we're talking about it, what's a hashtag?

If you've wondered any of these questions, come Tuesday night. I'll give you a tour of Twitter, explain the language of Twitter, help you set up an account, and give you a few people to follow.

Feel free to bring your smartphone or laptop and play along.
