Welcome to the Connected Church News!
This news item is part of the weekly top 5 news bulletin (from Week 3, Nov 2022) specially packaged for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures.
Twitter has announced that they are launching a new feature called Mixed Media, which I think is going to be useful for lots of nonprofits and ministries. This lets you add four different elements in one tweet, and those four can be either a video or images or GIFs, so it can be any combination. Now, that makes it interesting because you can get creative. You can add one video and then one image to explain the video, or you can have a couple of images about an event and you can add a promo video along with that to showcase the event. So all of this going out in one tweet makes you reach people in a much more visual way, conveyed in a tweet in a much easier fashion. So I think it’s a great feature. Definitely check it out. Pass it on to your ministry social media team. It’s also nice to see Twitter coming out with new features in spite of all the changes and transformations the company is going through after the new CEO took over.
