The Pope Uses Both Twitter and an iPad

Published

on

So…I guess this means that everyone, including God has a Twitter, huh?

Pope Benedict XVI entered the twitterverse yesterday with his very first iPad tweet:

“Dear Friends, I just launched News.va Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI,”

For anyone wondering, News.va is the Vatican’s new online Vatican news organization.  The Pope, unlike the Dalai Lama, does not have a personal Twitter account, as of yet, but uses the Vatican’s official Tweet feed (@news_va_en).  As of this post, it has close to 47,000 followers.

You may think it strange for such a religious figure to use Twitter, but in his May 2010 message for World Communication Day, Pope Benedict XVI encouraged priests to use social media:

“Using new communication technologies, priests can introduce people to the life of the Church and help our contemporaries to discover the face of Christ…They will best achieve this aim if they learn, from the time of their formation, how to use these technologies in a competent and appropriate way.”

Hey, if he could learn how to use it, more power to him.  Check out a video below of the Pope learning how to use his iPad:

AWKWARD: Ross Didn’t Like His Pet Monkey On ‘Friends’?!?

Published

Remember back in the 90’s on Friends when Ross got a pet monkey while living in New York City and no one batted an eye? Those were truly simpler times. Here in the jaded 2019, we just discovered that David Schwimmer didn’t like working with that monkey and now I don’t know what to believe anymore.

Last night, Matt LeBlanc stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote his latest sitcom, Man With A Plan, but it was his chat about a particular Friends star that has the internet buzzing. When Jimmy Kimmel coyly asked if Matt keeps in touch with Marcel the monkey (who is actually named Katie in real life), Matt shared a nugget of information that I wasn’t prepared to ingest. David Schwimmer did not like working with the monkey!

“I liked the monkey! I like animals, and the monkey was really cool. Schwimmer… Not so much. He’s the one that had to work with it the most, so he was like, ‘Again with the monkey?’ But I got along great with it.”

Ouch. Right in the nostalgia. Apparently Katie the monkey wasn’t always the most cooperative co-star as Matt recounted the time she forced taping to come to a complete halt when she climbed above the lighting grid to hang out on the ceiling. It took about thirty minutes and a few mealworms to finally get the monkey back down to the set! Talk about a diva.

VIDEO: The 38 Seconds Of Video Lori Loughlin’s Daughter Olivia Jade Is Regretting Right Now.

In a video from last year, Loughlin’s daughter says she will balance trips to Fiji and NYC into her school calendar, “doesn’t know how much of school (she is) going to attend” but she wants the experience of game days, partying, and “doesn’t really care about school, as you know.”

As mom Lori Loughlin faces allegations she paid 500,000 to help get her daughter Olivia Jade into college as a member of the crew team – even sending photographs of her daughter on a rowing machine to create the impression she was an athlete – a video made by her daughter in August is making the rounds again for the embarrassing references she makes to not even caring about getting an education in the first place.

In the video, an entitled Olivia Jade, a YouTuber followed by 2 million people on the video platform, says she will balance trips to Fiji and NYC into her school calendar, “doesn’t know how much of school (she is) going to attend” but she wants the experience of game days, partying, and “doesn’t really care about school, as you know.”

Why she hasn’t taken this video down yet completely escapes me.

Naturally, social media has unleashed upon her, although it is unclear whether Olivia Jade even know her entrance into college was a result of bribes, (if the allegations are proven correct.)

In either case, the social media celebrity had to apologize days after this video first came out, and is more than likely wishing she had taken it down entirely now…
