Follow me, that’s what!
A friend just send this to me – a Twitter notification he had received – and it gave me a chuckle, so I thought I’d share. Maybe my follower has more spare time on his hands now …
Like KRudd, you too can follow me on Twitter: @FrAdrianSharp
I have been on Twitter for a while, but I wouldn’t say I completely understand how it works yet.
I just went to have a look at the Pope’s twitter page and I see that Benedict XVI’s tweets have been archived to news.va. Perhaps unsurprisingly, only the tweets themselves are archived, and all the (often vile) comments have been disposed of. The comments weren’t very edifying reading.
One thing about Twitter is that people can add you to lists, so I see that those lists are still there on the @pontifex page.
This got me curious to see what lists I have been added to. When I checked I discovered that I’d been added to a number of predictable “priests / religious / clergy” lists as you’d expect.
But one list I’m on did make me laugh. It’s called “Catholic Tweep Bloggers: Tweeps who represent themselves as Catholic & appear to be orthodox. Some may not be.”
Thanks. I think.

[ok, this is an in-joke here in Ottawa, but …] A colleague sent this to me … it is too good not to share! Maybe you might like to leave a caption in the comments?!
I thought this was amusing over at Bridges and Tangents:
I can certainly agree with quite a lot in the first two columns!!
I have learnt, over at Sentire Cum Ecclesia, that a little mistake got through the editing of the new missal that will be used in Australia.
Certain additions were permitted in our edition on account of the fact that we are a wild country, with storms, and droughts, bushfires and floods.
Apparently a finger slipped, and in the index, a certain prayer is listed for use in “time of draught.”
Pray at all times, I say, even in the pub.
Anyone for a pint?!
