New 86-year effort to Tweet The Bible, one verse a day

I’m a tech-savvy guy, but I’m not exactly an early adopter. I’m more of a 2.0 adopter. But I appear to be getting in on the ground floor of Tweet The Bible. Actually, I just joined the project at Genesis 1:18.

Don’t worry. There’s still plenty of time for you to follow Tweet The Bible, a collaborative effort to consecutively tweet every verse in the Christian Bible. At one verse a day, the project will take 86 years.

As Beliefnet explains, based on a press release from the Tweet The Bible folks:

The project is the brainchild of Anthony J. Thompson. According to the press release, he and “a group of friends were casually discussing what the early church might have done had they had Twitter and other technological advances we enjoy today. They joked that if St. Paul had had a Twitter, then the majority of the New Testament would have been comprised of millions of tweets tweeted over the years. Thompson, a 30-year-old web developer, says he has always felt called to use technology to edify the global Christian community.”

This is not to be confused with past efforts to Tweet every verse in short order in the Bible or to use Twitter to share selected verses.

Tweet The Bible is worth a follow, but it’s difficult to imagine how sending out one verse a day will be seen by many followers, considering all the noise that fills most users’ timelines.
