It may come as no surprise to many of you but I, being a techie person, do use Twitter. Surprise, surprise!!!
Many people ask me why I use twitter. For the longest time I couldn’t figure it out. I enjoy it and learn from it but I couldn’t figure out how to explain it’s value. Well let me explain now. I enjoy technology and I enjoy being one of the first to experience just about everything. With Twitter you have instant access to the pulse of the global news or even the news from the block over. You can get a glimpse of what people find important, by the links they share. But most important to me, I get to see first-hand what early adopters of technology are looking at and trying out. That’s where I want to be. I want to know what is coming and how they intend to use it.
OK let’s bring this full circle back to masonry. Hmmmm… Ummmmm…. hmmmmm… Well there was that Masonic twitter group I started a few months back. Just look up #mason in your twitter search and you will find it. Oh and of course there is the @masoniccentral twitter account that is tweeting our podcast start times and regular posts from this website.
Can you see my challenge yet? I’m looking for useful ways to use Twitter in a lodge or Grand Lodge environment. Now I do have a few more ideas but I really want to challenge you the readers to send me some ideas. Comment on this post and let me know what your genius idea is for twittering that will benefit lodge in some way.
In the meantime, follow me on Twitter… @dbk If I don’t follow you back then please let me know your a mason or a reader/listening fan of mine. I’ll return the favor.
Don’t forget to post your ideas for Twitter as a comment to this post…
