Gospel Light Bible Baptist Church has many ways of communicating information: from Sunday bulletins, Pastor Giardino’s e-mails, ministry meetings, Facebook, the GLBBC web-site, and gossip (just kidding). We have recently added Twitter to the list.
1.) What is Twitter?
Twitter is a messaging service that enables its users to send and read messages known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts (up to 140 characters) that are displayed on the author’s Twitter page. The posts are delivered to the author’s subscribers, who are known as “followers.” All Twitter users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter website or external applications. Gospel Light now has it’s own account at www.twitter.com/glbbc.
2.) Why do I need Twitter?
Pastor Giardino has been looking for a more rapid and reliable means of broadcasting information to GLBBC members. Announcements, prayer requests, and other comments will now be posted to Twitter by Pastor G. on a daily basis. His tweets will be accessible on-line within seconds of his posting to Twitter. Church members looking for the latest GLBBC news can now monitor the church web-site, www.glbbc.com, or use their own personal Twitter account. Note, the titles to new blog postings will also appear on on the GLBBC Twitter page.
3.) How do I view the GLBBC Twitter page?
Two basic ways of viewing the church’s Twitter page (with Pastor G.’s messages) exist:
a.) The first method is for people without Twitter accounts.
- At your computer, open your internet browser and go to www.glbbc.com.
- You are now at the GLBBC home page. Click on the word Twitter at the bottom right-hand corner of the web page.
- You are now at the Twitter home page. In the search box, type glbbc and click on Search.
- You will now be able to view the Twitter posts for Gospel Light.
b.) The second method assumes you already have a Twitter account and are an experienced user. You need simply to subscribe to the GLBBC Twitter as a follower and view the posts via your PC, smart phone, or PDA.
