Pope Benedict may have a twitter account, and he is expected to begin tweeting on December 12th. But there will be no infallible tweets:
Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli, president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications told the press conference the pope’s tweets would not be “dogmatic positions” nor infallabile statements on Catholic doctrine and dogma. The pope’s followers would receive “pearls of wisdom” from the 85 year old pontiff.
“Pearls of wisdom” are nice and all, but, c’mon, can’t we have some infallibility to liven twitter up? Or how about some excommunications? Are excommunications via twitter too much to ask for?
