Live from the Vatican before a studio audience

by Toby Manhire / 15 February, 2013
In retirement, Benedict XVI will still live at the Vatican. So what, wondered Twitter, to call the sitcom?
As an eager Twitter user, Pope Benedict XVI will almost certainly have been sitting flicking through the surge of tweets that greeted his resignation (it’s safe to guess he uses a tablet).

Within minutes, the accounts @BonoForPope and @TonyForPope (ie Blair) were up and running, and there was a lot of other activity, much of it forgettable.

And today has seen another solid effort from the Twitterati. News that Benedict will continue to live in the Vatican post-retirement had the Wairarapa’s favourite farmer, John Hart, observe: “So the retired Pope will live in the Vatican, neighbour to the new Pope. Best new sitcom premise ever?”

And with that, a Twitter parlour game began.
