Our rollout of the @deaconspeaking Twitter Team account in the diocese has been proceeding smoothly. We have received good recognition: retweets, likes and profile visits by many Twitter users. Each day we explore new features: Lists, Hastags, Tweet Requotes.
One of the best features has been the Twitter Moments… an opportunity to combine related tweets into a single tweet that pulls a strand of thoughts together. Two in particular, “Celebrating St. Mark” and “Trust in God” have enabled many more users to interact with our evangelization message.
Why? For one, the “Moments” package can be visually compelling, as with this painting of the Apostle Mark that was an element of a requoted tweet. Most of all, by combining two our three related tweets together, we have the opportunity to present a message that really communicates a point. And that’s often a challenge to accomplish in 140 characters!
Check them out for yourself and let us know what you think!

What better event to launch the use of our new Syracuse Deacons Community @deaconspeaking Twitter Team account than to share our diocesan Catholic Men’s Conference, IGNITE! There was so much to share at this year’s event that coincided with the Solemnity of The Annunciation.
The excitement among the nearly 1,000 men gathered was worthy of sharing. This ninth year is based on a perfect formula for success:
Spiritual Graces – Mass, Reconciliation & Adoration
Catholic Challenges – 3 Very Dynamic and Different Speakers throughout the day
Community – Ample breaks, plentiful lunch, solid vendor support with plenty of space to mix and meet others with shared interests.
Six tweets during the day captured many of the conference highlights. And now, other deacons in the Diocese of Syracuse are joining the Twitter Team to ramp up our evangelization efforts.
