Pope Starts Personal Twitter Account - NYTimes.com: On Monday, the Vatican announced that the 85-year-old pontiff would begin posting messages on Twitter next week under the handle @pontifex, a term for the pope that means “bridge builder” in Latin. Within hours, he had more than 250,000 followers.
Benedict is expected to send his first post at a general audience at the Vatican on Dec. 12 — a response to questions about matters of the faith that he is now accepting via the hashtag #askpontifex, officials said.
