Twenty Tweeters

May 20, 2012

Prayers for Change the World weekend started Friday at midnight. Tweeters signed up for thrirty minute slots. Twenty people officially participated; some joined in throughout the weekend. Over the course of the day there were 11.5 hrs covered. Actually, 12. I only signed up for one shift and prayed for two. There were others who also prayed longer than their shift.

According to hashtracking.com #CtWTweets, 78 tweets were generated; 50,836 impressions, reaching 15,017 followers in a 24 hour period. There were 50 original tweets, 23 retweets and 5 mentions.

@lmitchwood Lord, as we rise from our knees in prayer, lead us to Change the World as Christ has changed us. Heart to heart,hand in hand AMEN #CtWTweets

I don’t know about you, but reaching over 15,000 people and over 50,000 impressions on Twitter for our first Tweet to Change the World is awesome!

Can you imagine if all the #UMC users on Twitter had participated? Our reach and impressions would have been extremely vast. Can you imagine if we all just did one tweet a day that was scripturally based?

If you think just about these stats, it makes your realize what kind of effect you can have on your followers. I (@ttennheat) had 12,320 impressions and I have just over 1,000 followers. Will this effect what I tweet in the future? Yes. My tweets aren’t just floating around, there are people reading them. How will I use my tweets? For good or evil? How will you use your tweets? To build people up or tear them down?

Let’s think before we tweet.
