LDS Church Apostles join Twitter


Elder M. Russell Ballard became the first member of the LDS Church’s Quorum of the Twelve to send out a tweet this Sunday the CES broadcast.

Since then, all members of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve have joined Twitter.

Elder Ballard spoke in the devotional about technology and social media.

“Our technological devices need to be our servants, not our masters,” he said.

The church’s feed retweeted and confirmed @M_RBallard was a legitimate handle. The post was retweeted 355 times and has been favorited 895 times thus far. Elder Ballard already has more than 7,000 followers.\

Although many people may be following him, he is only following a select five other feeds, including the LDS church, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

The church’s General Authorities have encouraged everyone to take to social media to share their beliefs. It looks like they just took their own steps to get the word out.

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland became the second general authority to tweet on Tuesday night after a devotional at the MTC.
