Tweeting the Bible: one chapter at a time

Ethel Ware Carter is tweeting the Bible 140 characters at a time here. So far:

Flights of doves and an olive branch. God remembers Noah in the "biblical sense" and smells the sweet savour of offerings. Genesis 8 #RCCAtl

Forgive the hero, you who would have died gladly with all you knew; he rode that tide to Ararat; all are Noah's sons. R. Wilbur, Genesis 7

#God declares an age limit; our #evil grieves him to his heart. #Noah gets the blueprint. There's gonna be a floody, floody. Genesis 6

6:40 PM Aug 6th via web
The days of #Adam and his descendants number into 900 years in some system of counting? #Methuselah inspires songs and sayings. Genesis 5

6:22 PM Aug 5th via web
We invent #murder - a brother's blood cries out. Did you notice being hidden from the face of God was punishment too great to bear? Genesis4

5:29 PM Aug 4th via web
Of a crafty #serpent -- wait, I believe this is the story of man's first #disobedience. Man, woman, was that a #fortunatefall? #Genesis 3

8:51 PM Aug 3rd via web
#TreeofLife, #TreeofKnowledge, and a river runs through it. And ah, bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh. #Genesis 2

6:34 PM Aug 2nd via web
First Tweet of a big project, the #Bible. Sound. Lights. Multiply. It was very good! #Genesis 1

I must admit the utility and appeal of twitter completely escapes me.

Ditto Facebook.

Twitter is a fascinating new land in which many people live and hence the church needs to have a presence! Great to see Ethel Ware's creative presence.
I find twitter a mostly very positive place where people are seeking to enrich their own and other people's lives (cf the negativity of the YouTube comment culture). Surprisingly my twitter is the second most followed in my country http://twitter.com/liturgy has about 74,000 people following.
