On today’s Tech Help for Churches: 12th at 20,000: Using Twitter to Reach New People

I just crossed the finish line on a goal I had for this year, to get to 20,000 twitter followers. That makes me #12 in my city for twitter users. I have more twitter followers than any of the local news people, the former coaches of the local University’s football team, and most local businesses. How did I do it and how can your church learn from my techniques? We’ll talk about that today.
