A surprising shot in the arm!

Do you use Twitter?  (Latin pipata, or "tweets" from pipio "to twitter, chirp")

Do you know about the Top Conservatives On Twitter list?

There are some real heavy weights on that list, who have far more followers than I.

But we have nevertheless obtained a place on the #100 "Most Interesting" category.

If you use Twitter, maybe you can boost the follower count as well.

What a nice surprise on a day when my To Do List is leaving me a bit intimidated.

And if you would take a moment to VOTE for WDTPRS if you haven’t already?

We are doing our best to hold our own in the Catholic Media Awards.

    Cool! I enjoy your tweets.
    My vote has been cast.
    - @RepCom1140 in NY

    I’m looking forward to June 20th.

  2. @markomalley says:

    I follow you as well.

    But why do you only follow 38 folks, Father? (I can see not following all 1428 of your followers, but still…)

  3. @markonmalley: It is simply for the sake of keeping my twitter thing, Twitter Fox, and my iPhone Twitter app, fairly uncluttered. I already get around 500 e-mails a day. I just can’t do it all.

    Thanks Father, I followed you on my RP account @_The_Shadow which I’m using most often lately.

    I would ask/advise that if you haven’t already, check your settings and see that you get all @replies rather than just those from people you follow. This will allow you to see anything directed at you without having to follow a bunch of people.

    I understand. I think Melody\’s suggestion, check your settings and see that you get all @replies is almost good. What I would suggest is to try out Tweetdeck: http://tweetdeck.com/beta/ — you can keep your eye on 4-5 timelines at one time (for example, I have my timeline for all my friends, a timeline for @replies, one for #tcot, one for #catholic, and one slot free for miscellaneous searches.

    FWIW / YMMV.

  6. There is also tweetcatholic.com that lists many Catholics who twitter and our faithful to the Pope.

  7. I think we could benefit from a thread/workshop on Twitter.

    I would love a tutorial / thread on twitter. I have signed up and I follow some, including dear Fr. Z. But for the life of me, I’m not sure the why of this new toy or really the how. I would love the help.
