Gospelr is the twitter for Christians. According to its developers, the purpose of this microblogging technology is “to provide an effective communication medium for sharing thoughts, ideas, words of encouragement, prayer requests, daily scripture readings/devotionals, and more to friends, staff, ministries, family, and others.”
I have been maintaining a Twitter account since October 2007 and I use it not only to update my friends about my whereabouts but also as a ministry platform. My tweets are mostly quotes about faith, praying, joy, celebrating life and spreading God’s Word. In short, Gospelr is exactly how I want Twitter to be.
The fact that there are people out there who want to code, develop and make use of the latest technologies for evangelization amazes me. Gospelr is another example that popular web applications and services can serve the Church and its mission.
Two things that make me want to use Gospelr is its being Twitter-integrated (what you post in Gospelr will also appear in Twitter and vice versa) and the developer’s promise that they will soon make a WordPress plugin (my site is powered by WordPress).
