Religious Hashtags on Twitter?

While in Nashville this week, I learned this trick from @jonacuff, master of all the things. The trick (in case you were confused) is called “write a tweet on a scrap of paper and then take a picture of the scrap of paper and then tweet the picture.” It’s very meta.

So, answers?

If you consume or produce religious content on Twitter do you have a favorite religious hashtag?

#Twitter4God anyone?

Bueller?

  1. The deputy director of the FDA division that oversees
    metabolic drugs stated, “I was a little surprised the vote went as it did”, the
    deputy director felt that although many panelists weren’t strongly against Qnexa, but possibly just had
    some lingering concerns that would make them
    vote no. In such case, take one in early morning
    and another supplement 4-5 hours before you sleep.
    Some of these drugs are appetite suppressants,
    reducing the inclination of the human body to feel hungry or need food.

  2. I worked for a couple years in Children’s Ministry at a church, and there’s a huuuuuge social presence for that group. They use the hashtag: “#kidmin” to denote KidMin (Kid’s Ministry) related things, and the community around KidMin is really pretty cool. There are all of these influencers who rose up seemingly out of nowhere because of Twitter driving traffic to their blogs or whatnot. Similarly, there’s “#stumin” for Student Ministry and “#ptmin” for PreTeen Ministry and so forth. That’s probably the best practice of religious hashtags I’ve seen. I roll my eyes at most of the cliché ones, a la “RT IF YOU LOVE #GOD!”

  3. The handwritten note tweet is very popular on Instagram. Another variation, write a note on your iPhone Notes and take a screenshot and post that. #Tworship is also my fav hashtag, every night at 9pm \o/. And Ed’s right, I do see followers drop off after tweeting something related to my faith (and politics too), but heck, free speech is fun, and there’s still a few hundred million other tweeps I haven’t met yet.

  4. I serve in a church and don’t really have a favourite religious hashtag! but I would imagine #wwjd (what would jesus do) would be a popular hashtag!

    I have a tweetup most Thursday nights US time with some other church communications peeps and we use #cmsucks as our hashtag. We talk about mainly what is effective and what isn’t in the world of comms.

    Come say hi!

  5. One I see a lot is #Tworship – it is sort of an interactive Twitter-style worship in which the tweets are lyrics to hymns, etc. I usually am a bit sheepish when I pop in to say “Have a great #tworship” because timing wise I am usually simultaneously participating in the not-at-all religious #wineparty on Friday nights. Well, that’s Twitter for you.

    On a serious note, it is not “religious” per se but this organization for which I use #CFCA is a lay Catholic organization that serves children/youth/aging of all faiths. I use the hashtag when I am tweeting about the Christian Foundation for Children and Aging (www.hopeforafamily.org). For instance, I was recently promoting a child as a candidate for sponsorship and I consistently used the #CFCA hashtag as well as #8000kids to highlight their campaign to get sponsors for 8000 kids.

  6. [Sorry to go off topic, but this is important. I apologize if this sounds negative, and you should stand up for what you believe in/be true to yourself. But, beware of the following reality]

    I’ve found it to be damaging to tweet about religion (and politics).
    Despite posting modest comments and links,
    the small number of tweets I’ve posted with a Christian theme,
    are a retweet of a ‘national’ pastor, or link to related content
    (even during general charitable events),
    has led to being ostracized by many of the people in technology
    (Twitter/Google etc), whose favor and goodwill I had more than earned, and couldn’t afford to lose. But I did lose it.

    I had no idea that 1% of my tweets (religious/political)
    could undo hard earned goodwill, from thousands of hours of other subject value and help I’d volunteered.

    People will deny it, but I have watched breathtaking changes in relations with folks, following a single ‘religion’ tweet.
    It has been clear and obvious, but they deny correlation.
    Most recently, Comms Team member at popular social media platform turns cold, and years of doing them favors evaporate, following my one (1) tweet about Maria Shriver’s interview with Dr Billy Graham.
    Exercise your free speech…..with your eyes wide open.
