Pope goes Twitterish. Good luck, dude.

Well, when 'da' Pope goes live on Twitter (as announced by the New York Times), then I am awfully curious to see how his reputation will develop from here. Abortion, condom use, 'priestophilia' are just some of the topics that come to my mind.

"Benedict is expected to send his first post at a general audience at the Vatican on Dec. 12 — a response to questions about matters of the faith that he is now accepting via the hashtag #askpontifex, officials said" (from the NYT).

What questions would you ask?
