I am slightly amazed to discover that I have made a list!
The Church Mouse has compiled a list of the most prolific CofE tweeters, and hidden beneath the slightly weird scoring system I find myself at number 16

I celebrate the fact that Mother K rates higher than me, but then again she is a much nicer priest. I wonder what you have to do to be rated at all? It is a good job that it doesn’t analyse the depth of theological introspection in 140 characters!
I know there are many who have deep suspicions of Twitter, and yet I find it an excellent way of disseminating information: following breaking news and ideas; just as blogging moved from the introspective diary into the Op-Ed or feature column, so Twitter is less about short conversations than scatterbombing references, links, reactions and prayerful insights. I have had a Twitter account for some time and for the past year or so have been a heavy user: a Blackberry and now an iPhone helps on this very much. WordPress automatically tweets my postings and this is then reflects onto Facebook. All bases are covered.
I was sending out texts and tweets of prayerful reflections via BlessedAltW but now my phone contract has changed this has had to stop. This was a pity because I really enjoyed the ‘pray in 140 characters’ discipline. Maybe again in the future: phone contract permitting.
