The Pope Officially Has the Worst Twitter Name of All Time

The Pope, divine mouthpiece of God himself and owner of vast riches and influence, has taken to Twitter. Half holy, half Kardashian, Hitler Youth graduate Benedict XVI is now social mediafied. So why is his Twitter handle so unbelievably weird?

As The Daily Show Points out, you'd imagine Benedict—or the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, which runs his internet vibes—would have been able to take his pick of names. Say, "Pope," or "ImThePope," or at least "PopeBenedict16." But no—he's Pope2YouVatican, a name so convoluted that it sounds more like a robot spam account than the channel for Benedict's Papal dictations.


Also, my friend, you could really use a new background and account picture. Maybe let's just scrap the whole thing and start over. [The Daily Show]
