The Pope To Join Twitter By End Of 2012
Following the example set by the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu—who hosted a Google Hangout last October—the Pope himself is set to join Twitter by the end of the year.
A Vatican spokesperson revealed that Pope Benedict XVI is ready to jump on the social media bandwagon and will be setting up a personal account on Twitter.
However, given that Pope Benedict is known to still prefer putting down his words with pen and paper, it is unlikely that he will be typing out—or even formulating—the tweets personally.
With more than a billion Catholics in the world, the Pope can expect to be greeted by a flood of followers once he goes live on the social networking site—which is probably one of the best ways to spread the word of God today.
