Updated: Dalai Lama joins [did not] Twitter and nothing will ever be the same [still goes]
It turns out someone fooled us all and created the Dalai Lama name on Twitter. At more than 16,000 followers in one weekend, the fake Dalai Lama was one of the fastest growing accounts that Twitter has ever seen.
If you didn’t know about Twitter before you’ll definitely learn about it now. The American microblogging service has gotten their latest user – The Dalai Lama. His holyness will be twittering under the name @OHHDL.
It wasn’t many days since we heard that Pope Benedict XVI opened his YouTube channel. And now this. 2009 will definitely be the year when social media got accepted by the public. This is freakin´cool huh!
