The Divine Tweet

Passion Play on Twitter

Love this idea. Who wants to do a Twitter Seder next year? Hannukah? Torah study? There is a certain degree to which Talmud study is replicated by the Twitter/Blog comments format; a central text followed by a series of thoughts, some independent and others referring to previous posts.

What we need is non-linear posts; the top down post list creates the illusion of relatedness and precedence that doesn't really exist. True Talmud looks more like a large series of notes in the margin. How can we replicate this with a blog?
