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.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
