Pope Benedict XVI is on Twitter, hasn't weighed in on #RoyalBaby

The apolcalypse is less than three weeks away. Luckily, you'll be able to hear about the end of the world from Pope Benedict XVI simply by whipping out your smartphone. The Vatican announced on Monday that Pope Benedict is set to start tweeting from @pontifex. Pontifex is a term for pope—it's Latin for "bridge builder." Pope Benedict XVI hasn't sent a tweet yet, which means we don't know how he feels about the Duchess' pregancy or the #RoyalBaby madness. He's expected to send his first message out on December 12th at the Vatican. If he doesn't RickRoll all 1.2 billion Catholics, then he's totally doing the Internet wrong. [New York Times]
