What a Deal of the Day: Vatican Offering Indulgences to Pope Francis' Followers
Here's a novel way to buy new Twitter followers: sell them a reduced prison sentence in the great beyond. In exchange for following Pope Francis' Twitter feed during World Youth Day in Brazil on July 22nd, the Catholic Church is offering "indulgences" to reduce time spent in the afterlife halfway house of "purgatory." The announcement was made to urge those who could not attend the event in person to follow it remotely, as it will be marking the pontiff's first official visit to Latin America since becoming Pope in March.
