Pope Benedict XVI Joins Twitter

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.
