PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pittsburgh pastor is all a Twitter with a new idea for a Lenten fast: No social media.

KDKA-TV reports the Rev. William Curtis has asked members of his church to give up social media sites like Facebook and Twitter for Lent, which began Wednesday and runs through Easter.

Curtis says he’s not even asking his members for a full 40-day fast, just three or four days.

And, Curtis confesses, “It’s going to be hard for me because I practically live on Twitter.”

The pastor doesn’t want to police his congregation’s compliance, but confesses he might have a peek on the Internet now and then to see how many of his members are trying to cut back on social media, saying “Let’s say I might every now and then go on and just see.”
