Twitter Takes Remembrance Digital

Today and on Sunday services will be held in remembrance of those who have given their lives in the service of the country, but for many people it is not possible attend any of these services and therefore they are missing out. However, a project called Tweet Remembrance will be using the micro blogging site Twitter as a different approach and a way to people from all around the world together in one place at one time!

According to James Thomas, who thought up the idea of Tweet Remembrance, he said;

“I came up with the idea on Wednesday night. I wondered if there was going to be a two-minute silence on Twitter and then thought, why not have an entire service on there?

“It’s a chance to engage with people who would otherwise not be, for whatever reason. Not everyone is able to go to a church and it’s an alternative to watching it on television. It’s also just to see if it works.”
