DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Nov. 1 /Christian Newswire/ -- James Paris, the Founder and CEO of the high-profile Christian financial websites ChristianMoney.com and ChristianInternetIncome.com, is thrilled to mark the one-year anniversary of the social media site Christian Chirp, the Christian alternative to Twitter.
Twitter has gained fame as a social networking and microblogging service where users can post messages of up to 140 characters in length. Mr. Paris founded Christian Chirp as a Christian-oriented alternative to the popular site after he was suspended from Twitter for ten days last year. The "backstory" of his suspension can be found here:
Christian Chirp proved to be very controversial upon its initial release, as critics from both within and without the Christian community took issue with founder Paris's belief that a social networking site designed and maintained from a more traditional Christian perspective was in order. Nevertheless, Paris remains committed to his vision, and has released the following statement marking the anniversary of Christian Chirp:
"We at Christian Chirp are committed to filtering all inappropriate content so this will continue to be a safe place for Christians to network and fellowship online. I am very excited about the growth we have enjoyed in our first year. We recently completed a redesign of the site, added a mobile version, and made the interface much more user-friendly. For all of those that said we would not make it, know that we are here to stay. We're excited to have reached our first birthday, and we're looking forward to many more years of sustained, significant growth."
In addition to overseeing Christian Chirp and his other proprietary financial websites for Christians, Jim Paris is the author of more than 20 books on personal finance, to include the bestselling Money Management for Those Who Don't Have Any and Absolutely Amazing Ways to Save Money on Everything, and makes numerous appearances each year on nationwide television and radio.
