The Anglican Communion News Service writes about the Christmas Twitter campaign led by the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Archbishop of York:
Churches from across the country took part in the campaign, using the hashtag “#Christmasmeans” to share their Christmas messages. Figures show almost 7,500 tweets were sent using the hashtag with peak traffic occurring on the morning of Christmas Eve. The hashtag was also used in America, Canada, Thailand, Singapore, the Philippines and South Africa and others, making it a truly global campaign.
Taken over a 48 hour period from Christmas Eve to Christmas Day these figures represent an average of 114 tweets per hour, or a tweet every 30 seconds.
The cumulative reach for the 7,305 tweets using the hashtags was 4.1 million Twitter users.
Led by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby (@abcjustin) via his Christmas instagram video message, and the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu (@johnsentamu), churches took to the twittersphere to communicate the good news of Christ coming into the world.
