Jesus would have 'tweeted' says initiator of Twitter Bible

October 15, 2009

Frankfurt (ENI/epd). An unusual Bible is being presented at the Frankfurt Book Fair in which the Scriptures have been compiled in the form of almost 4000 short messages in Twitter format.

It began in May at the German Protestant Kirchentag, or church convention, in Bremen.
