@pontifex: Papal propaganda

Another sign of the imminent (Mayan) apocalypse? The Pope is tweeting. In eight languages.

At this writing, he has over 1.1 million followers on his English-language account, and he is following only his other seven language accounts (Spanish and Portuguese and his native German are among them, but all have substantially fewer followers than the English language account).

And God, of course. He's following God, but God doesn't tweet. Not via Twitter, anyway.

Roberto De Vido writes cartoons and comics about politics, sports (and life) from a small fishing and farming village an hour southwest of Tokyo.
