BP using Twitter, Facebook at SBC meeting

ORLANDO, Fla. (BP)--Baptist Press is hosting its Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting blog again this year and will also be sending out updates on its Twitter and Facebook pages.

The blog, dubbed "Instant News," is available at www.bpnews.net/blog and will provide readers the nuts and bolts of news about the meeting nearly instantly, seconds after events on the convention floor take place.

Additionally, brief updates from the blog will be posted on the BP Twitter page (Twitter.com/BaptistPress) and Facebook page (Facebook.com/BaptistPress). The Tweets and Facebook updates will provide only the highlights from the blog, such as vote(s) on the GCR report and the vote for SBC president.

The blog, Twitter and Facebook pages provide readers the basics of stories while Baptist Press' reporters develop more in-depth reports.
