At the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership, I attended an informal conference within th conference. It was called a TweetUp and it was organized by Jonathan Sullivan, the Director of the Catechetical Office in Springfield, IL. It was simply a gathering of Catholic bloggers and Twitter users -an opportunity to meet one another and compare notes and share stories. It was a lot of fun and very informative.
Now, I guess I should start using Twitter! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by, Joe! Your presence certainly lent the proceedings an air of respectability. 😉
Let me know if you want to get started on Twitter — I’d be happy to help!
Thanks, Jonathan…it was great. I’ll give Twitter a try and if I have questions, u da man!
Great to see you there, Joe, even if you don’t yet Tweet. You should try it. Great way to reach a whole other audience. I think I am starting to get the hang of it. A group of us spent one of our storm-delay hours at the airport laughing our socks off at the Tweets about #lessinterestingbooks – I think I should put a pseudo Paprocki title in there !;-)
Joyce, I think the Atlanta airport got a good dose of Catholic patience over the last few days with all the delays!
I noticed you joined twitter yesterday! That’s great you made the leap! Good Luck. My twitter name is woleary3.
Hi William. Not sure what I’m leaping into but it’s worth a try! 🙂
“Now, I guess I should start using Twitter!”
Yet another new trick to confound the old dogs.
This old dog’s gonna give it a try!
What is the difference between blogging and tweeting?
Hi Karen. A blog is like your own Website where you post your thoughts and comments on a variety of issues and can do so in depth and even insert pictures and links. Tweeting is a way of posting very brief thoughts (140 characters or less) on a Social Network, Twitter. You log on to Twitter to see what everybody is saying and what they’re up to. Of course, I’m new to Twitter so I’m still learning!
I work with teenagers. Does anyone know of printed guidelines on how to use Facebook and Twitter safely with teens, staying within Ministerial codes of ethics and Keeping Children Safe guidelines? Most dioceses have safety programs (under different names) but mine has no guidelines on using social media to contact children.
Mary, take a look at these policies from Cleveland: http://www.oce-ocs.org/ocs/docs/InternetSafetyResource_2008.pdf
