Podcast: Ryan P. Burge on how religious leaders use Twitter today

Tweeting the Word of God: Evangelism from a ‘Digital Pulpit’

In this podcast, Dr. Ryan P. Burge, of the Eastern Illinois University, discusses how religious leaders use twitter today, whether successful tweeting means having conversations, and the extent to which evangelicals engage with politics on twitter. His discussion is an extension of his paper “Is Social Media a Digital Pulpit? How Evangelical Leaders Use Twitter to Encourage the Faithful and Publicize Their Work,” which is published in Brill’s Journal of Religion, Media and Digital Culture.
