Have you heard of Twitter? If you’re into technology at all chances are you have heard of Twitter, and maybe you’ve even been using it. For those that haven’t heard of it, Twitter is a “free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read each other’s updates (otherwise known as tweets).”
If you’re into Facebook, it’s similar to the Facebook status updates.
Twitter just got some new competition through a new app called Yammer. Yammer bills itself as the Twitter for business people. Being able to stay in constant contact by answering the question, “what are you working on?”
Here’s my question, though?
Has anyone figured out a way to use Twitter or Yammer for churches or non-profits? What are some practical ways that you’ve been blessed and made more effective through using these apps? How do you see this changing the way you do business as usual?
I’m still trying to figure out if this is something worth jumping into.
