Pope Benedict XVI is on Twitter, tweeting encyclicals in
140 CXL letters. Actually, His Holiness was on the Twitter last year, about the same time he went on Facebook, but this is his very own personal account, and his handle is @Pontifex. Twitter Followers: 1,104,394, Following: 0. That’s your Vatican table of organization right there.
But Twitter works in mysterious ways. The Pope invited questions to the hashtag #askpontifex, unleashing a flood of tweeted inquiries about faith, sex, scandal and lunch. More queries of the
curia curious can be found here and here.
