Click the above link to get the full details and even some sample tweets that you can make. But here is the short version: We are trying to get a hashtag (#____) trending on Twitter from between 7:45-8:15 Rome Time in thanksgiving for Pope Benedict. The goal is to have the bar at the side of Twitter list that shows what’s “trending” show: #ThanksPontifex. Please consider doing this. If you don’t have access to your twitter at this time, then use a free third-party software to schedule it to do them for you. (He gives instructions on the link above.) I spent about 5 minutes looking through the @Pontifex feed on Twitter the other day, I was shocked and disgusted with what people have done through it. Instead of giving the pope words of thanks or encouragements, people have made such vulgar comments that I can’t even share on here, let alone in person. There is a “trending list” you can subscribe to, to see the trend happening. 

Please if you have a twitter account join us in thanking Pope Benedict XVI for his almost 8 years of service to the church and for the great things that he has done as the Roman Pontiff.
