Twitterfeed is dead

At least as far as I am concerned. Since my feed runs through feedburner anyway I gave Socialize a chance and here is the result:

No missed posts, no noticeable delays.

You should give Socialize a try, too.

socialize vs twitterfeed

Looking over my posts of the last week I notice that twitterfeed processed some immediately, most of them delayed and others not at all. Since my facebook wall gets its posts from twitter, my friends there miss out on some stuff that I write. Since the feed runs through feedburner anyway, it is time to give socialize a try. So this is the first post burned through socialize.

Read the Bible Daily

My New Year’s Resolution for 2011 is to Read the Bible Daily. For that I am going to use the Daily Reading Plan by the American Bible Society. This blog and a support group at my church shall help me.
If you want to read along, here is how:
The Daily Readings on the web
The Daily Readings on facebook
The Daily Readings on twitter
I guess for the most part I will use the New Revised Standard Version.
Every now and then I find The Message to be useful.
Please join me on this journey!

Super Bowl XLII Prayers on Twitter

Eli Manning led the Giants to an improbable victory in Super Bowl XLII.
Could you predict it? Maybe, because on Twitter there were more pro-Giants prayers than Patriotic ones:

macflauaus : Morning everyone! Today is the day that I pray I hope I’m right: a Super Bowl victory from the Giants!

cottonandsand : What im thinking in church today: pray for the Giants!

CathleenRitt : Hail Mary full of grace the lord is with thee. Please also be with the Giants. Pray for us twitterers now and at the hour of 6pm EST Amen

RobsaysHello123 : I pray the Patriots rise to victory and become forever remembered Good night n good luck.

That was 3:1 in prayers for the NY Giants, but not everyone thinks you should pray for a Super Bowl:

eoosen : thinks football is silly. Sunday is pray-day.
