(and some people didn’t hold back…)

2. But not everybody was happy about it, like these guys:

YOU ARE SAYING THERE IS 3 GOD IN 1. IS IT EASY LIKE THAT? IS GODSHIP LIKA NESCAFE OR SHAMPOO? 3 IN 1? COME ON MAN @pontifex

— Jafar Q (@CaferKocbasi) December 3, 2012

LOOK. YOU LOOKLIKE A SMART MAN. YOU ARE OLD. ONE OF YOUR FOOT IS İN GRAVE. COME TO ISLAM BROTHER. @pontifex

We wonder if Pope Benedict XVI, @pontifex, first tweet will be about raping little boys.

5. Some people had questions for the Pope.

.@pontifex My cousin Sean & I touched ween heads behind our grandparents’ barn when I was 7. Am I going to hell? Welcome to Tweeter!

Will @pontifex’s Twitter account read “RTs are not endorsements. Views are my own, but also God’s.”

.@pontifex Hi Pope. You know how the clergy are our line of communication with God? When priests shag kids does God feel it? Is he into it?

— Frankie Boyle (@frankieboyle) December 3, 2012

You’re tweeting profanity to @pontifex? Your parents must be so proud of your vocabulary and time management skills.

As the Pope starts his pontifex Twitter account, he could do worse than study dalailama account, which is impressive.

So far the only person @pontifex is following is himself #infallibility
