St Barnabas Tweets!

by L.K. O’Connor

Our parish was one of the first in the Diocese of Ottawa to open an account on Twitter, eight years ago, in April of 2010. It began as a communications channel for the Music Programme at St. Barnabas. At first, there were just a handful of followers. We now count over 440! Twitter is a social networking – or social media – service that is free for users.
