What Could Your Church Do With This New Twitter Feature?
Twitter is gearing up to offer a new feature. You will soon be able to record and add short videos to your twitter feed. All within Twitter. Best Ministry Practices wrote about this new offering, that according to Twitter should be available in the first half of this year. According to Kevin Weil, a Twitter VP: “Aside from just watching video more easily on Twitter, you should be able to record, edit and share your own videos natively on Twitter too… Alongside short looping Vine videos, we think you’ll have fun sharing what’s happening in your world through native video.” Big whoop, you might say. But hold on. Is this the next BIG thing? Who knows. But you should be prepared, or at least thinking through how this might change things. How might your church use short-form video on social media? Short Announcements? Reminders to attend on Sunday? Promos? Follow-up sermon material? This could be a new venue for you to communicate with your peeps throughout the week. So… what do you think? Is there a way to use this new Twitter feature to enhance your local ministry? Todd
