The number one catholic in the world, Pope Benedict XVII is set to join the millions of people round the world that own a Twitter account.
Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi made the announcement Thursday, saying details about Benedict’s handle and other information will come when the Vatican officially launches the account, perhaps before the end of the year.
He said it was gonna be nice having the Pope on Twitter, given that most of the most followed people were entertainers like Lady Gaga & Rihanna. He also added that Pope was just going to be tweeting and not replying, saying, “Let’s hope his followers are re-tweeting rather than engaging, because I don’t see the Pope sitting down and answering replies to tweets.”
