Pope Benedict has now officially joined twitter, though he has not actually tweeted yet. I wonder if any of his tweets will be infallible?
Anyway, with fake pope accounts here and there, there is some confusion as to which account is the real Pope . . . which sounds rather like the history of the church. Anyway, His Holiness’s account is @Pontifex. I like that name.
I wonder how Pope Benedict will fit into twitter. It’s a rough and tumble place, to put it mildly. And it very much has its ugly side, including knee-jerk pope hatred (LANGUAGE WARNING).
I, for one, welcome Pope Benedict to twitter and encourage him not to let the jerks get him down.
