A holy change on twitter.  There will be no more tweets from the Pope.  Pope Benedict XVI joined the social media movement last year.  His official twitter account “Pointfex” will be closed February 28th, according to Vatican Radio.  The Pontiff will likely send out his last tweet on February 27th, the day before he leaves the Vatican.  More than two million people follow Pope Benedict on twitter.
