I was suprised to hear on the radio and read on online that the Dalai Lama had joined Twitter. Having read that “His Holiness thought it was prudent to make his office open and assessable to a more youth and technologically advancing audience;” I thought that it was interesting and I suppose pretty cool that he would have the time and interest to do it but it did sound very odd.
Well it was. It’s not the Dalai Lama but some fake Dalai Lama or should I call them a ‘twitterist’. It’s unreal that his fake Holiness managed to attract over 20,000 followers within 2 days (I wasn’t one of them…yet). A feat that many people dream about attaining.
Anyway its cool to see that some people can still pull the wool over all of our virtual eyes and I suppose all news is good news for the Dalai Lama’s profile.
