The Pope Joins Twitter

Today, the Vatican announced that on December 12, which is the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Pope Benedict XVI (@pontifex) will be the first Pope to join Twitter.

I was raised Catholic. Now I’m going to feel bad about all my vulgar tweets.

Beginning now, people everywhere will have a chance to Tweet questions relating to faith and belief using the hashtag #AskPontifex. Questions will be curated by the Vatican staff for the Pope to respond to via his new Twitter account on December 12th in a live tweeting event at the end of his weekly audience.

I can’t wait for this hashtag to get hijacked. I wonder if someone has already asked, “Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck, or a hundred duck-sized horses?
