The Baha’i Faith on Twitter: A Sampling

While making regular posts on Twitter about upcoming courses, the Wilmette Institute keeps finding other Baha’i institutions, organizations, and individuals to follow. Below are some samples of ways  in which Baha’is are using Twitter to communicate, inspire, and defend their Faith:

Some local and national Spiritual Assemblies make regular posts and some Baha’i publishing houses are using Twitter. For example, we have found these:
