    Hello,

    I'm thinking of starting a Christian twitter account to spread the Gospel

    does anybody here have experience with it and succes?

    do you think it's useful?

    also, how do you go about getting followers?

    thanks in advance for your comments

    I suspect the effect is similar to a Christian trying to evangelize on an atheist forum.
    Generates lots of comments but very little actual thought.

    That said give it a try, if you cause one person to think it will be worth it.

    I sent 22 tweets yesterday (almost all of them Bible quotes), had around 630 views, and 2 profile views, no followers yet

    still it could have been much worse. they're read at least. hopefully today I'll get my first follower

    I have 4 followers now. But the views of my tweets have dropped. I'm a bit sad about that and wonder why that is.

    Yeah I do use hashtags, like #Bible #God #Jesus etc

    I think that's why my tweets had up to 100 views day 1. day 2 more like 20 views or less

    Don't get discouraged. Your tweet could save someone through Jesus 10 20 30 years from when you tweeted. God uses stuff like that. I have friends that got saved by something they read surfing. You may never hear from them. Heaven keeps excellent records. You might be surprised by your effectual evangelism.

    I have a tweet with over 300 views now. Used the hashtag #zomervakantie which means summer holiday in Dutch. Asking people if they have nothing to do and want a crash course in the Bible. It produced a follower too. Got 8 followers now. Doubled up today already.
