Twitter

Some people just don't get the idea of Facebook.

It's easy. Birthdays ! And keeping in touch with people who move house without telling, and so on.

Twitter had me baffled, though. Why send an SMS to everyone in the world ?

Then last night I realised. It's an exercise in style. Consider the following examples :

 D. A. Carson

The awesome apocalypse of God’s judgment can only be faced with a clear knowledge of God’s goodness to us in Christ. -@

We ought not separate duty from delight. They're in a reciprocal relationship.

The Christian life means to live all of your life in the presence of God. -R.C. Sproul


 Desiring God 

DA Carson: The coming of God's reign either demands repentance or brings judgment.
