The Vatican this morning unveiled Pope Benedict’s new Twitter handle - Pontifex. The twitter handle was chosen from dozens of other contenders to best showcase papal thoughts in 140 characters or less.
The Vatican said that the pope will start tweeting on Dec 12. “The handle is a good one. It means ‘pope’ and it also means ‘bridge builder’,” said Greg Burke, senior media advisor to the Vatican.
Yes it is a great handle! Of course @pontifex is not to be confused with our twitter handle @pontiflex. This New York based start-up has been connecting businesses with people successfully via mobile apps.
Now we are just waiting for the Vatican to release the Pope’s top ten favorite mobile apps! You will definitely hear about that @pontiflex.
