    Would you call somoene to ask for prayers, or do you know anyone who might do that?

    It's unlikely that I'd call for prayers, but I would call family members to let them know. It's unlikely that I'd contact people I knew only superficially. I am not even sure I would contact my office unless I knew I was going to miss work.

    Yes. My parents probably would. But, they have significant, meaningful face-to-face relationships with their church congregation, versus an "audience."

    How do you know how meaningful her internet relationships are? Seems to me only she can determine how meaningful she finds them.

    To me, it speaks to a serious dearth of real world relationships...

    The woman in question has protected her tweets now, so, I can't look to see how she used it. However, many people use twitter interactively, almost like a chat room. I'm not sure how familiar you are with twitter, but if you put "@" in front of someone's name, they can see that you have mentioned them. Many uses use this function in order to hold conversations. So, not quite a passive audience.

    And why would that mean she should be demonized?
