Twitterpated Over Poverty

A Conversation 140 Characters at a Time

by Eric Teetsel

Beginning last night and continuing through my commute to work yesterday morning I had an exchange with a few friends (and a few strangers) over Twitter about a recent piece in First Things. The article, The Preferential Option for the Poor by R.R. Reno, appears in the June issue but is also available for free online here.

That many dedicated Two Cents readers missed the Twitter dialogue is a shame, so I thought I would share it with you here, in chronological order, tweet-by-tweet. Enjoy!
