Christian Chirp = Twitter knock-off
Christian Chirp.com – a faith-based alternative to Twitter hit the Interwebs this week.
Florida businessman James Paris says he launched the site after being banned from Twitter for speaking in favor of conservative talk host Rush Limbaugh and being bombarded with inappropriate spam.
To me, this reeks of a bad Christian knockoff and unfortunately continues the long-held copy-cat tradition of our church subculture. If it works for you, cool. However, another alternative to consider is to only Tweet and follow people that respect, reinforce, and strengthen your faith.
BTW, the site appears to have recently come under cyber-attack as of the time of this posting. Not sure what that's all about.
