WYD-2013-logo

Greetings from New York! Sweet Tweets is late today — but not because of contributor  and friend John Clem, the Director and Media Minister at Catholic Web Services (http://catholicws.com/). He had them in bright and early! It’s late because this mom was out partying with her boys until 3:30 am. Not the hours I’m used to keeping, [Read More...]

One of my first stops each morning is to pay a quick visit to my favorite social media site: Twitter. Typically, my overnight haul of tweets that I’ve missed includes a gem from @Pontifex (who likes to tweet around 2:45 am my time) and messages from my friends living in other parts of the world.

Screen Shot 2013-03-13 at 1.00.18 PM

Although I find it unlikely that our new Pope Francis immediately rounded up his iPhone and tweeted personally, I was happy today to see a quick tweet from the official @Pontifex account: It’s terrific to know that the Vatican’s embracing of social media in the New Evangelization will continue.

@Pontifex vs @CardinalDolan Twitter Smackdown

Screen Shot 2013-02-18 at 12.56.57 PM

Because I’m just getting back from Hawaii and can’t seem to string two coherent thoughts together, here’s a little something to enjoy on this lovely President’s day I’m especially amused by the fact that both are determined to be “gamers” based upon their tweets. Who would you line up against each other in a Twitter [Read More...]
