WWJT-What would Jesus Tweet?

What would Jesus Tweet?

Would Jesus Tweet the Sermon on the Mount? The Beatitudes?
@Judas.."What you are about to do, do it quickly" ? Or more like...
@Disciples.."Let the little Children come and do not hinder them, for such is the kingdom of God" ?

 If Our Lord were on the earth today walking around with his iphone, (or would He have a much more modest device like a used Blackberry or Droid?) would He even Tweet? And if He did what would those Tweets look like?

@President Obama.. That stuff about making my schools and hospitals that are called by my name purchase insurance that pays for the death of my precious little ones...We have to talk."

Or would it look more like this? @RushLimbaugh..."I understand what you're doing, and I know why you're doing it, but you have left your first love. Repent therefore and return."

Or maybe Christ would stick purely with the Word of God? His word.
@America..."You cannot serve two masters, either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money."

I wonder If Jesus would try to be diplomatic and conciliatory...sort of like a lot of Christians today want all of us to be.
@ELCA..."Go ahead and ordain Gay Pastors, I never said one way or the other so it's totally fine with me, Peace and Love."

Or, would He be more straightforward and direct like @ModernPharisees..."Woe to you theological professors at major Universities, you hypocrites! you clean the outside of the cup and dish but inside they are full of greed and self indulgence."

Perhaps @Jesus on Twitter would be a lot softer and just stick to the easy, pleasing to hear tweets like @Religious leaders..."It is not the healthy who need a doctor but the sick. But go and learn what this means, I desire mercy not sacrifice, for I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."

Maybe if Jesus were here today he would be a technophobe, rejecting corporate technology? but I kinda doubt that seeing as He spoke to crowds of thousands 2,000 years ago and obviously had no problem with the social media of the day. (Speaking really, really loud)

I wonder if Jesus would Tweet about his miracles?  "I fed 5,000 people today with just five loaves of bread and a few fish...they didn't think I could do it! LOL"

Or, @Mary "I healed a Leper today..the Pharisees were watching  "

I'm not a theologian, but I think Jesus wouldn't leave out anything or try to be too diplomatic...seeing as how He's God and all and wants what's best for us...

Don't shoot me, I'm just the Sax Player..
