Thread: Pope to join Twitter

  1. #1

    Default Pope to join Twitter

    There was a time when this would be unthinkable, am I getting too old to keep up with the changes /

    The Pope is to go live on Twitter on the 12th of December.

    Pope Benedict XVI officially joins Twitter with live tweet event - latimes.com

    How long until the Pope has a million followers ?

    And what are the consequences if he doesn't get the million ?

    What makes you think it will be the Pope making the tweets? I bet he will make the first one and then a close aide will make the rest.

    A million followers on twitter? He has 1.196 billion followers in the real world.

    The consequences of not reaching that figure? Sweet FA.

    He will be allowed 140 characters, he could be a bit more expansive than that.

    I somehow don't think Twitter is an ideal medium for religion though.

    Will you follow ?

    Being limited to 140 characters will suit the Ratican down to the ground when they are responding to various abuse reports.

    Would that not make the Pope a small bit dishonest ?

    I wonder who he will follow ?
