(ANS – Rome) – With the first message sent by the Rector Major the publication of ANS has begun on one of the better known social networks: Twitter. From today it will be possible to receive information about the daily, and sometimes extraordinary news items from the Salesian iNfo Agency.
The simple operation of writing the first ANS twitter message was carried out yesterday morning, 24 June, in the office of the Rector Major in the presence of the members of the Social Communication Department.
“It was a small gesture in honour of the Rector Major on Don Bosco’s nameday,” explains the General Councillor for social Communication, Fr Filiberto Gonzalez. Especially we are taking up the courageous invitation of the Pope to be present in the digital continent with our identity and purpose. In his message for the 46th World Communications Day the Pope writes: ‘Attention should be paid to the various types of websites, applications and social networks which can help people today to find time for reflection and authentic questioning, as well as making space for silence and occasions for prayer, meditation or sharing of the word of God. In concise phrases, often no longer than a verse from the Bible, profound thoughts can be communicated, as long as those taking part in the conversation do not neglect to cultivate their own inner lives.’ We have followed up this idea.”
“Our work in ANS is to make the Salesian experience a matter of news,” the Director of ANS, Fr Donato Lacedonio adds. “ We hope that Twitter will help us make more widely known, as well as our site and newsletter the news items we produce not only in the Salesian world but also far beyond it. So I am inviting our readers to read and reply to our news.”
ANS - “Agenzia iNfo Salesiana” is a on-line almost daily publication, the communication agency of the Salesian Congregation enrolled in the Press Register of the Tribunal of Rome as n 153/2007. Pursuing Don Bosco’s ides of making his work known, ANS employs the work of a central office and the valuable and important support of correspondents and collaborators in almost all the countries in which the Salesians are present.
