Tweet Scripture with a click

BELLINGHAM, WA—January 27, 2011—Tweeting entire scripture passages just got easier with Logos Bible Software's Ref.ly Bible Verse Links plugin for Seesmic Desktop.

The new Ref.ly plugin is smart—smart enough, for instance to know whether you're talking about where you work (your new "job") or your favorite passage in the book of Job. It's a great tool for improving your Twitter experience!

Logos created the new plugin to encourage conversation centered around the Word. With this tool, people can share passages without tapping out their 140 tweet characters.

Users can easily tweet their favorite Bible verses to friends from church, point followers to a passage they recently read, or share Scripture currently impacting their life. And the process is much simpler than navigating to another site to create a short url, which is then pasted into the tweet. With Ref.ly Bible Verse Links, just one click of a button will convert your Scripture references to short urls that link to Biblia.com.

Logos wrote the Ref.ly plugin to be used on Seesmic because Seesmic is an open-source program that encourages people to create innovative, useful tools. It's a good place to demonstrate how important a tool like Ref.ly Bible Verse Links is for the Twitter community.

Check out these examples of Ref.ly scripture urls:

Ref.ly links are based on the technology behind RefTagger and http://ref.ly and point to Biblia.com, all free services of Logos Bible Software.
