The pope gets on the twitter bandwagon @Pontifex

The Dalai Lama has his FaceBook page with 4.6million “likes” and now, The Vatican has announced Pope Benedict’s twitter name – @Pontifex!

Pope Benedict

The Vatican announced that the pope will start tweeting on 12 December and also explained that pontifex means ‘pope’ as well as ‘bridge builder’.

Of course the tweets will be spiritual and will be written by his aides but the pope will sign off on each tweet, but for his first official tweet, the pope himself will be pushing the ‘tweet’ button.

Follow away people!
