All 'a-twitter' about the Bible

German Protestants used Twitter to publish the Bible in a series of short microblogs.

After theologians divided the Bible into 3,000 segments, volunteers posted section summaries as “tweets” — messages limited to 140 characters.

The online activity took place May 20-24 during the Kirchentag, a biennial German Protestant convention.

Organizer Melanie Huber said it highlighted new ways “to receive and make known the word of God.”
