Yesterday was the last day of Pope Benedict and he is the first Pope to retire in 600 years. Even though the Pope was late in using twitter and actually have a a small number of tweets, he have more than 1.5 million followers. The Vatican appears to have deleted Pope Benedict’s entire history of tweets and changed the name to “Sede Vacante” which is the Latin for “the seat being vacant”.
It looks like whoever will be the next Pope, the Vatican wants them to start on a clean slate, well at least with his twitter account.
