Colliding Juxtapositions: Re-Thinking My Use of Social Media (i.e. Twitter)

If you want to get a glimpse in how my thinking has changed in regards to my use of technology and social media, and more specifically Twitter…then look no further than these two articles that I have written for Collide Magazine in the last year and a half.

The first article I wrote in the 2009 March/April edition of the magazine, and you read someone who is in love with social media (specifically Twitter)…telling all pastors they should be on Twitter: Why Twitter? Shaping Our Narrative One Tweet at a Time

The second article I wrote for the 2010 September/October edition of the magazine, and you read someone who is finally beginning to think more thoughtfully about how I use technology…and how it transforms my relationships…and no, not all pastors should/need to be on Twitter: Twitter: On Second Thought

The journey continues…

Has your thinking on your use of social media changed at all in the last year? How?
