Without going in to further details, let’s have a look how the world of Twitter has reacted to Pope on Twitter (the response started from the day the Pope Joined Twitter, mind you).
I know, man. I miss him too. RT @pontifex: Hitler.

Dear, @pontifex did it hurt when Darth Vader threw you down that hole?— Razzle Dangerously (@MyNameisRazzle2) December 13, 2012
The correct way to disagree with @pontifex is to say 'Nope'.— Peter Serafinowicz (@serafinowicz) December 12, 2012
Pope sends his first tweet today. Bet it's to ask for prayers for Arsenal— Christian O'Connell (@OC) December 12, 2012
Just waiting for the pope to make his first tweet so I can respond with massive amounts of gay porn and other "blasphemous" things— Scottie Taylor (@scottiethebritt) December 8, 2012
Pope has got half a million followers and he's not done one tweet yet...pressure on for that 1st one... Maybe 'happy birthday baby Jesus'— Wynne Evans (@wynneevans) December 8, 2012

Welcome to Twitter, @pontifex. A word of advice: No matter what they say or what pictures they DM you, those "boy fans" are rarely under 16.— God (@TheTweetOfGod) December 12, 2012
May be Karapandza saw the seriousness of the Pope having an account that Vatican didn’t (or maybe they did, who knows?)
Dear Pope, please allow me to give you few advices. Now you are in the center of media attention. Remember:Every tweet is a press conference— Karapandza (@karapandza) December 12, 2012
Hers’ what TMZ had on the news:
KiddNationTV had the following reaction:
Maybe the funniest came from the Funny or Die people. They put their own voice over the video showing the pope making the first tweet.
Here’s the video with the hilarious/offensive (depending upon your inclinations) audio!
It’s the mad world of the internet we are sure the Vatican had at least a very basic idea what would result from a twitter account and the notion of the Pope tweeting.
