Twitter is buzzing today, as Pope Benedict XVI ’s new Twitter account has been revealed. The buzz started yesterday, when it was reported that the pope would launch a personal Twitter account.
Where's the Pope?—
Bill Hemmer (@BillHemmer) December 03, 2012
Many thought the account would be under the handle @benedictusppxvi, and started following that account in anticipation.
But, the correct account is @Pontifex.
The account’s follower numbers are growing by the second!
As for whom the pope is following?
"Vatican officials have said they hope that all the fake Pope accounts will stop once the official account has launched."—

Ah, keeping tabs, perhaps. Alas, The Vatican will soon realize that fake accounts won’t end any time soon. This is Twitter!
Chuck Grassley welcomes Pope Benedict XVI as only he can.

Ugh. Sadly and predictably, that did start.
Hey Pope, maybe you can start by apologising to everyone.—

Roseanne Barr, of course, joins in the hate.
the pope is just another man in a dress telling women what to do.—

And others follow vile suit.

The Pope will fit right in on Twitter. We too have no idea how to responsibly handle allegations of paedophilia.—

Pope is going to make a Twitter account and going to make the first tweet himself. Calling it will be "Where's all the choir boys at?"—
Daniel (@GritThoseTeeth) December 03, 2012
The Pope has joined Twitter! The Catholic Church brining their pursuit of young boys into the 21st century….—
Simon Young (@SimonDyoung) December 03, 2012
Pope is looking to open a twitter account! Well twitter is probably the best place if he's gonna be looking for young boys—

Brown Jesus (@_ItzRozay) December 03, 2012

Will the Pope be able to fit all that gay hate into 140 characters or will there be space for an attack on condoms and women—
Darren (@DarnEther) December 03, 2012
Really? This coming from people who gay-bait and bash constantly. And lady parts peddling, of course: See, the pope totally hates women, what with all that trying to protect them from being killed in the womb. Monster! Another thing that the haters don’t understand; the pope loves them, no matter what they say or do, and always will.
Haters, heal thyselves.
