With abundant tweets occurring during the discussion of rules, many folks claimed to be “Methodist dorks” or “polity nerds.” “This is like the Olympics of Methodism” was retweeted several times over the course of the day. A tweet from @umjeremy revealed something bigger at stake: “I can see @amylippoldt tweeting on her macbook during the Episcopal address. Its our gen’s version of ‘call and response’ J #gc2012 #GCYP.” @umjeremy’s tweet may confirm Jay Voorhees suspicion, “I think the increase in twitter activity represents a generational shift. My impression is that there are a lot more folks under the age of thirty here than I’ve ever seen before.”
