Twitter is like a big party. A lot of the same rules apply.
When you first step into the party, you may not be sure what’s going on. You look inside the room and notice there are a huge amount of people making a lot of noise. The whole room seems to be moving to the Twitter rhythm, and it looks intimidating.
I want to help you cut through the noise, and find some great people dancing to the Twitter beat. Let me introduce you to Christians at the Twitter party who are worth following. These people have shown they are interesting, engaging, and shining bright for Christ.
I received a lot of suggestions. This was the criteria I looked at in evaluating these Twitter accounts.
- Does the biography description and tweets represent Christian values? For this post, I only considered accounts that were promoting a biblical world view.
- Is the account active and used often? I wanted to select Twitter accounts that looked like they reflect the person’s life. I tried to avoid accounts that seemed too programmed.
- Does the person talk to others? I tried to select individuals that aren’t just interested in hearing themselves speak. These people talk with others. Conversationalists are always the most fun.
