That was a question posed this week on the Washington Post's On Faith blog. Here are some of the responses from experts quoted on the blog:
"No, God does not tweet nor does God have time to listen to almost 7 billion people insincerely pleading for mercy."
"Jesus spoke in tweets before tweets became cool, if by tweets one means short messages."
"There is nothing really offensive about the idea of getting short and snappy messages from the Divine."
"The question is not really whether God tweets, but are we capable of tweeting anything sacred, purposeful or meaningful."
On a walk the other day I happened to see God standing outside a garage door. I could have settled the matter once and for all, but I was too scared to approach.
