Trinity Church Wall Steet will present “Twitter the Passion” today from noon to 3 p.m. EDT through the microblogging service Twitter. In what is believed to be the first Passion Play ever presented on Twitter, followers will receive 18 “tweets” from cast members Jesus, Mary, Mary Magdalene, Peter, Pontius Pilate and a serving girl who also serves as the voice of the crowd. Tweets will include messages such as: Pilate: This is falling apart. I wash my hands of this.
Twitter members can follow the Passion Play at http://www.twitter.com/twspassionplay. Tweets can also be delivered to a cell phone or email address.
