Big moment for Twitter: Ashton Kutcher beats CNN to become the first Twitter millionaire, having over a million followers. Rumors are that Google might announce a Twitter acquisition tomorrow. More Google eyes into my life – that makes me nervous and it makes me glad I removed my Google ads from this blog.
I read through the letter to the Hebrews again yesterday, and noticed that believers are to “exhort each other daily”. A daily connection is difficult with a typical weekly church rhythm, or with our lives of geographical isolation. But social media can make a positive difference in helping us stay connected, share how we are doing, and offer quick 140 character exhortations to each other.
Darker side? A follower is not necessarily a friend. I would rather have a single good friend than a million followers.
“A man of many companions [followers?????] may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother” Proverbs 18:24
