Some new guy on Twitter hasn't even tweeted yet, and he's already at nearly 170,000 followers. How did he do it? By following a simple formula: 1) Be the Pope. 2) Join Twitter. Pope Benedict XVI is the latest member of Twitter and the first Pope to join. The Pope's Twitter handle: @pontifex. We're still waiting on his first tweet, and whether or not he will follow anyone (other than himself in other languages). While we wait for the first ever tweet by a Pope, here are some suggestions for his Holiness:
