I heard it on Twitter
Did you know that today is Dietrich Bonhoeffer's birthday?
For the past eight months, The Lutheran has been using social networking tools to connect with our fans and friends in cyberspace. We ventured into Facebook and MySpace. (We're still not sure about the usefulness of MySpace.)
And now we're on Twitter. We use it to send updates about The Lutheran, The Little Lutheran and The Little Christian. We use it to ask for feedback from you, our readers. (Most recently, we asked how you're communicating hope in these hard economic times.) And we follow you, our readers, too.
For example, Justin Wise's e-newsletter "Lousy Christian tippers" has become one of the most popular stories on our site. Ever. (It's had 3271 readers since going live a few weeks ago.) It started as a blog posting on his site, which I found through one of Justin's "tweets."
And Corey Vilhauer's photo of children in a nativity scene at First Lutheran Church in Sioux Falls, S.D. will appear in the December 2009 issues of The Little Lutheran and The Little Christian.
