The Pope and the Internet: Will he Twitter?

gledhillRuth Gledhill of the Times tells us, “Pope admits fallibility and pledges to start using Internet.” It is an entertaining posting.

Quoting:

. . . ‘Let us begin with the "mistakes" acknowledged. They are essentially two: the Holy See was not aware that via the "Internet" one could come to know the negationist statements of Williamson which instead were superimposed in a "unforeseeable" way on the remission of the excommunication, causing a media short circuit that caused the whole affair to be misrepresented. From now on, is the conclusion, the Vatican will have to pay more attention to the Internet as a source of information. . . .’

She concludes:

A bit of time on the Internet will do [the Pope] the world of good, thought it is perhaps hoping for too much to expect the Holy See to set up an account on Twitter.
