Updated: A Dominican twibe

Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read messages known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the author's profile page and delivered to the author's subscribers who are known as followers. (See the full Wikipedia article)

Lay Dominican twitter users may want to join the LayDominicans twibe (twitter group). Tweets broadcasted from members of the twibe, containing at least one of the tags Dominic or Dominican or #op will be shown on the common twibe page - which is public and can be looked up by anyone.

How does this look? At the center of attention stands a simple list of tweets like this (notice the twibe tags in bold - that would be the tweets picked up by the LayDominicans twibe):
# Communion in the hand? Several articles, excerpts and links http://bit.ly/5UWfZ (from Semper Fidelis)

# The Promises and Charisms of Lay Cistercians http://bit.ly/B2aW8 (from The Website of Unknowing)

# Please indulge me http://bit.ly/ifjZv (from The Practicing Catholic)

# Manual of the Brothers and Sisters of the Third Order of Penance of St. Dominic, 1852 http://bit.ly/PJC8U (from Dominican Idaho)

# Apostolic activity comes out of an abundance of contemplation http://bit.ly/a3t4o (from @disputations) #op
The list is updated every couple of minutes by all new tweets written by the Twitter users that one is following.
