Pope Francis's election burst straight into social media with the first tweet on the @Pontifex account. Not that he sent it out himself. And an alleged personal twitter account @JMBergoglio was suspended by Twitter after being denounced by the website Slate as a fake. The real thing came after the previous pope Benedict's tweets had all been deleted. At 7:33pm - 13 March 2013 came the news from @Pontifex: HABEMUS PAPAM FRANCISCUM.
