The Pope to join Twitter

Pope Benedict XVI sits in Revolution Square on March 26, 2012 in Santiago de Cuba, Cuba.

This final note today.


The Pope's gonna get on Twitter. It's a whole new kind of follower -- yeah, you probably heard that one already.


Could be tricky, though, squeezing even a trimmed-down papal encyclical into 140 characters. Especially if his handle turns out be, as expected, @BenedictusPPXVI -- his name in Latin. Plus, that's 16 characters right there.
