The coming apocalypse may not be foretold with fire in the skies or the boiling of the seas, but in the most unlikely of places in a tweet.

That's according to the Rev. Franklin Graham, son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, in an Easter weekend interview with ABC's Christiane Amanpour.

Graham was excited about the possibility of social media and the Internet communicating the The Second Coming to the world.

"The Bible says that every eye is going to see it. And you know, I thought -- how in the whole world is that going to happen?" he said. How is the whole world going to see him all at one time? Unless all of a sudden everyone's taking pictures and it's in the media worldwide. Social media could have a big part in that."

In fact, Graham's own Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has jumped into the online world with fervor. The association has its own Twitter profile, Facebook page and a regularly updated YouTube page. Recently, it has even added an iPhone app into the mix to get the message out.

We could call her on her wood-fired cell phone and give her a heads up, or heads down as the case may be.
