Sorry Catholics, I just don't really care about who the Pope is anymore, I might care when all the child molesters are in jail or at least out of your church. At least this guy wasn't a Hitler Youth, though he is from Argentina...

TheManofPA: But what is the Pope's new twitter handle


Same one as the old pope, @pontifex. It's controlled by the office, not by the individual guy. It was actually kind of funny- they apparently turned it inactive when Benedict officially left office and reactivated it when they got white smoke. To think that there's a guy at the Vatican responsible for reactivating the papal twitter handle immediately after the conclave chooses someone is kind of funny. Soon it'll be just as traditional an element of the ceremony as the tolling of the bells.

meyerkev: Hack Patooey: And?

If you have a good domain name, you can get 4-5 figures for selling it.  For something as specific as this (and given that it's the Catholic Church, the single richest organization in the modern world*), he might have just gotten a million-dollar payday.

*I'm guessing.

The Vatican is its own country, though. They have their own top level domain, so I imagine is safe. Looking at, they could stand to do some work on their site, but it looks like they now have a Papal app, which is some progress. Insofar as Jesuits enjoy discourse I think the new pope may be keen on expanding engagement online. Although I doubt he'll turn up for an AMA on Reddit any time soon.
