Welcome to The Connected Church news!
Our next news is from Twitter.
Two news items. Important ones from Twitter. First is: Twitter launches its own version of groups. Twitter groups like Facebook groups. It’s called Community. So what you can do very soon is to create communities based on topics.
I have already applied for a couple of topics so you can apply right now. It’s application-based. So you can apply for a community, build your community. And then when you tweet, you can select everyone or your community. You can just have that conversation only with people in that community.
I think it’s a fantastic move by Twitter. The second news item is about Twitter Spaces and it’s a good one. Twitter Spaces has come up with an updated end-card. Earlier, when you were on Twitter Spaces and you finish the event, it just said “Spaces has ended”. Now the end-card has additional information like the title of the Spaces, the name of the host, the name of the speakers, etc., And a follow button right next to it. So very clever. Very important. If you do Twitter Spaces events, then this is something you might want to take advantage of. Because after you finish the event, people will be able to follow you. So you might want to, at the end of the event, tell people, “hey, after we finish, you’re going to see the end-card. If you’re not following the speakers or anyone, please click the follow button” and people will do that.
Note: This news item is part of the weekly news show, The Connected Church News, that collects the Top 5 Digital and Social Media News each week for leaders of churches, ministries or christian nonprofit, and presents it to them in 5 mins.
