We’re officially in December, which means plenty of Christmas music, plenty of year-end lists and plenty of British Royal Family pregnancies. Okay, just one of the last thing, but it was indeed Kate Middleton’s pregnancy that headlined the news week according to Twitter. Also on Monday, Pope Benedict XVI officially joined Twitter under the handle @pontifex. He’s already amassed over 500,000 followers and probably an even larger @reply inbox. We’re still awaiting His Holiness’ first tweet.
