Gospelr: Twitter For Christians

Next Story

Review: SteelSeries Ikari laser mouse

“First things first: Praise God.” That’s how Gospelr starts out its announcement that the company’s microblogging service is officially ready for users to sign up and “spread the word.”

It was bound to happen sooner or later.

Gospelr is quick to point out that it’s not “just another Twitter.” Instead, the site prides itself on being the world’s first “Ministry Microblogging” tool for those that want to share thoughts, ideas, words of encouragement, prayer requests, daily scripture readings, and oh so much more.

The company’s founder wants it to be more than a Christian Twitter, though. Beyond being a place where people can chat it up about ol’ JC, the company wants to be the place to “share the Gospel with those that have already heard the Good News (because we all could use a good reminder… daily!) and those that have not.”

Gospelr tries to change the way people interact on the service too. A normal “tweet” is colored in brown, while replies are green, and imported tweets from services like Twitter are colored in blue.  That coloring scheme will make it easier to identify what’s being said and who is saying it.

The service can also let users upload and share files like Pownce, and most importantly, it auto-refreshes the page so you don’t have to.

Gospelr gained Twitter API source parameter approval, so whenever you tweet something in the service, you’ll notice an update on Twitter saying “from Gospelr.com” and it will also work with TweetDeck and other applications that let you syndicate material to Twitter.

Gospelr is available now for those that are looking to try it out.

I’m sure you’re wondering what is my favorite feature of Gospelr. Is it the chance to tell the world what I read in the Bible today? Nah. Is it the ability to hear others tell me about JC? Nope. It’s the RSS button. Check it out. Awesome, huh?
