If you are looking to get on the cutting edge of social media you can look no further than Saint Patrick…

Saint Patrick

After training as a priest and bishop, Patrick arrived in Ireland in 432AD

and immediately set about trying to covert the pagan Celts who inhabited

the island. Having previously lived and worked there, he was very probably

already aware that the number three held special significance in Celtic tradition

(and, indeed, in many pagan beliefs), and he applied this knowledge in a clever way.

He used the shamrock, a three-leaved clover which grows all over the island, to explain the Christian concept of the Holy Trinity ie the theory that God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are each separate elements of just one entity.

In addition to this St Patrick is credited with drawing a Christian (or Latin) cross through the circle, and blessing the stone. In this way, it is said, he created the first Irish Celtic Cross and showed himself willing to adapt heathen practices and symbols to Christian beliefs in order to ease the transition from pagan to Christian.
