Twitter for churches

Guidance for using Twitter in your Church for Mission and Evangelism


Why use Twitter for your Church?

Twitter is an online news and 'micro-blogging' site. It is great for posting quick and frequent updates, and for interacting with other businesses, charities, or public figures.  However, make sure to consider whether your target audience uses Twitter, as the site does have a certain demographic, and using it as a Church might not be successful if your audience isn't there. It can be a really useful platform for people to engage with each other during large events. Active monthly users: 330+ million (source). Target audience: Twitter users. Best for: large events (i.e. conferences, festivals, concerts)

"46% of UK internet users are on Twitter" (source)
