Learned from Twitter: week ending April 4, 2009

This week I learned a lot from twitter. Maybe it was a rather informative week, maybe I just paid more attention, or maybe it had to do with April Fool’s Day. Whatever the reason, I’m dumping it all here for you to enjoy/learn from.

6. Some April Fool’s Day tweets:

lilkup (Me) posed this question:
“If Jesus was born on April 1st, do you think everyone would have thought it was a April Fool’s Joke?

bigsmooth433430(Matt Couch) responded with this statement:
“@lilkup Maybe even more interesting to ponder is…If Jesus had died or risen on April 1st, would people have thought it was a joke?
