Following CTE Twitter '@ChurchesEngland'
Anyone can follow news from Churches Together in England on Twitter.
Here are a few notes for those who are new to Twitter with an explanation of how CTE currently uses the service for our followers.
Twitter is a free service in general use around the world.
If you do not have a Twitter account, information to join is on www.twitter.com. It is free to join and you dont have to do more than follow @churchesengland if you wish.
Followers usually see the 'feed' of news on their smartphone, tablet or computer.
If you have a Twitter account search for '@ChurchesEngland'
You will see the CTE badge
Our ID is 'CTEcomms' (for CTE Communications).
We shall post news related to the CTE website about the Churches in England working for mission and unity.
Important notice: Twitter is designed for open access - tweets can be written and read by everyone with a Twitter account.
While grateful for the provision, by using Twitter, CTE is neither endorsing the service not agreeing with the content of people who use it.
The general CTE policy re Twitter content, is to 'retweet' information provided by member churches, agencies and networks we are either in partnership or a working relationship with. We also retweet news of specific relevance and interest to the network of Churches Together in England with the basic aim, 'so the right hand knows what the left is doing'.
The CTE twitter feed @churchesengland provides followers with a general daily update of news from the churches in England. CTE gathers the headlines together in one feed @churchesengland and selects the news we think will be of most interest to other churches.
We try to check our Twitter feeds 3 times and day so the window on the home page of www.cte.org.uk is as relevant and current as we can practically manage.
