It's reductionist, but Christian Twitter sucks. I'm not on Twitter anymore, but I've lost a LOT of respect for friends, and even prominent thinkers, in the way they handle themselves on there. As I said to someone else the other day, "You don't need to dunk in order to score. Sometimes a layup is good enough." But between the subtweeting, the QRTing, the snarkiness, the judgmentalism... Especially when you get into "Weird Christian Twitter," it's, I'll be honest, disgusting, and I think runs the risk of turning people away from the faith just like fundamentalism has.
