BBC: Pope starts tweeting as @pontifex, blesses followers

I just checked out His Holiness's Twitter page—keeping an eye on the opposition, and all that—and was frankly astonished to see his choice of logo/wallpaper:

@Pontifex Twitter logo
The @Pontifex's Twitter logo this morning.

It's a crossed out knob!

Pretty apt, when you think about it.

  1. Ribbed is one thing but that looks decidedly impractical to me - I suspect it's largely ceremonial.

    With the number of "followers" he's likely to have, he could probably make a fortune selling novelty condoms in the same design. Oh.

  2. I hope you sat down while you were up there...
