Mormon Twitter Time




OK - I have a new blog segment I would like to do every once in a while. It will be called "Mormon Twitter Time". Essentially I will track twitter for an hour the night I am going to do the post. I will search for any twitter anyone has put out that has the word "mormon" or "lds" in it. I will copy each tweet exactly as it was sent without any spelling corrections and I will also include the corresponding tweeter's name. I will not include any tweets that include expletives, are critical of the leaders of the church or link to an online story. Even in just this one hour tonight there were over 30 tweets. I think this segment adds a interesting look into what people around the globe are saying about their perception and experience with the church. Posts are sometimes funny, sometimes serious and often very random yet entertaining. If you like this blog post and would like me to continue this every once in a while let me know.
