A "tweet" from pope Vindictive? This is a PR move to attract youth, not a "message".

And when I say PR, I mean Pedopriests Recruiting, trying to entice children into sex. Appealing to youth and using things young people do is one tactic commonly used by pedophiles.

Parents and grandparents in general all contribute to new-product development, either as a use of polls and demand-calls directed toward them or as technical/cultural input directed from them (much such activity having questionable legality, such as 'harassment' tactics). Therefore, extreme ambivalence about new products and the m.o.s deployed to ensure their mass production can be a factor that affects interactions with naive young people.

With regard to twitter.com , the service is tongue-in-cheek accommodation of specific college populations known to practice bird- and other-creature vocalizations as a sort of intelligence pool.

they produce only more and more gadgets to play just like this ipod, ipad and some other redundant things. Let them say with what a cost they produce it and what materials they need and with what cost to produce this bs. How many people did they murder to produce these things to play to rob their countries.
