Pope Benedict XVI on Twitter -- thoughts?

Within just a few hours, Pope Benedict XVI will be sending out his first 'tweet' as @Pontifex. What are your thoughts on this -- a good move or a likely disaster? We've been debating this in my home throughout the night. I'll share my opinion after others weigh in.

Making Catholicism more accessible to young people? Good move, I say.

I don't tweet but I know lots of teens/young adults who do, and at a time in their life when they are likely exploring spiritual identity, having something positive on their horizon can't hurt.

That's my $0.02, anyway!

Well, good move unless he starts tweeting about what he's eating for breakfast, or the latest celebrity sighting. :biglaugh:

*tweet* *tweet*

(Curious to hear your thoughts on this, Missy.) I'll have to think about this one and respond at another time.
