It turns out that the Buddha has become popular on Twitter. What started as a test for the Twitter API, just over six months ago, has resulted in twice a day tweets from quotes from The Buddha, being delivered to 634 followers (currently).
Want some uplifting sayings every twelve hours? Join Twitter (if you haven’t already) and follow @thebuddha. Most of the sayings aren’t religious in nature, they are merely positive thoughts and common sense. Thanks for following.
You can see the more than 380 sayings that have already been tweeted, by using the ‘Older’ and ‘Newer’ buttons on the lower part of this page. You can even grab the RSS feed for your own remixing or re-tweeting.
