Live Tweeting Worship?

Saw this tweet today from Tim Challies
RT @challies: What you will soon hear in church: “Our text this morning is Mark 3, so please take out your phone and swipe to Mark chapter …
When he attended a Christian conference in Australia four years ago, one of the speakers asked attendees to hold up their Bibles. "There were about 20,000 people there. I looked around the room, and thousands — thousands — were holding their phones and Kindles up in the air. I knew from that point that the context was going to change forever."
If you see someone using their smart phone during a worship service, don't assume they are mentally checking out to look at Facebook or play Words With Friends; They might be reading the Scripture text, or live tweeting the sermon.
