Pope wants Faithful to “convert” to Twitter

While trying to enter Asia to spread the “Christian Good News”, a euphemism for converting the local populations – while decimating the local cultures and myriad of belief systems and rituals as new “Walmartization” of culture happens – Pope now wants to enter a new territory.   Social Media.

He has a new directive for the believers.  Throng to the Social Media like Twitter.

He himself has opened an account, and despite just 26 tweets, has amassed over a million followers.

“Believers are increasingly aware that, unless the Good News is made known also in the digital world, it may be absent in the experience of many people for whom this existential space is important,” he said in a statement delivered on the 47th World Communications Day, also the the feast day of St. Francis de Sales, the patron saint of journalists and writers.

Maybe soon into the future even Holy Mass may be shared on Twitter, one tweet at a time.  140 characters.
