It’s funny (not really). Recently I’ve seen a number of what I humorously call “Twit-B*tching” on Twitter.

Best part? All of them have been between Christians. What a great testimony (dripping with sarcasm here).

Now, I will admit that I’ve participated in a few, so I raise my hand in guilt and shame, but I’ve been re-evaluating how I do this Twitter “thing.” Here are a few of my thoughts:
- I have (historically) spent a lot of time on it.
- Because I spend a lot of time on it I hear a lot of “chatter.”
- Because I hear a lot of chatter, I’m more tempted to jump in to the conversation stream.
- Because of my increased engagement in the conversations there also increases the “opportunity” to participate in conversations that are “not so healthy.”
- Because of that I get in to “Twit-B*tching” about pretty stupid things.
So, I’ve decided that I’m not going to be on Twitter as much as I have. You probably have already seen my decreased “twitteria.”
But here’s the much larger and important point: There are a ton of people who follow me who do not love Jesus. I’m not sure I’m “winning” them over by blasting another fellow brother in the face about something pretty dumb.
Bad testimony people.
That’s all I’ll say about that.
