This is the Twitter page for the Pope. I follow it.
I see that right now (12:30 a.m. - midnight - Sunday) that His Holiness most recently tweeted 6 hours ago. Yet – his plane left Brazil only a few hours ago! I wonder if he tweeted from his seat on that plane that had just begun its flight back East to Rome?
I see that he has tweeted at least once, more often two or three times, every day while he was in Brazil!
3 times - July 27th
3 times - July 26th
3 times - July 25th
2 times - July 24th
3 times - July 23rd
2 times - July 22nd
1 time - each day on the days prior to July 22nd
He tweeted more often when he was on his own pilgrimage in Brazil than he does when he’s at home in Rome. Like me when I’m on vacation. I tend to want to – and do – write a lot of postcards while I’m still on site!
The papal Twitter page was started by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI (I think it was) a month before Benedict renounced the Papacy. He certainly was on the front edge of communicating with the world – even technically.
Now, the papal Twitter page is written by Pope Francis. Note that Francis did not change the name of the papal Twitter page. It’s still “pontifex.”
